Postdoc Daniel Carrera wins NASA grant

Postdoc Daniel Carrera has won a NASA grant with Professor Jake Simon to study physical processes at work in the early Solar System. This award, which amounts to approximately $547,000 over 3 years, will use a novel approach to study both the growth of small grains and the gravitational collapse of these grains simultaneously in order to address one of the largest open questions in planet formation study: how are small bodies such as asteroids and comets formed?  Congrats to Daniel!
