This one-minute excerpt comes from a special colloquium celebrating the 25th anniversary of the SETI Institute.
Watch a video of Dr. Cynthia Phillips giving a one-minute summary of her work.
Cynthia Phillips joined the SETI Institute and the Carl Sagan Center in 2000. She is a planetary geologist who studies images of many of the solid bodies in our solar system, with a particular focus on icy satellites and Mars. Dr. Phillips also runs a variety of educational internship programs at the Institute. Her dream is to one day see new pictures from a dedicated spacecraft orbiting Jupiter's moon Europa.
