Jamie Porter, Ph.D. is the Director of the Lunar Surface Innovation Consortium (LSIC) and the Assistant Group Supervisor in the Space Environmental Effects Group at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL). Jamie leads the radiation team for the Dragonfly mission and APL’s contribution to the Europa Clipper Mission spacecraft. She’s a member of multiple instrument teams including the Europa Imaging System and Plasma Instrument for Magnetic Sounding on NASA’s Europa Clipper and the Particle Environment Package (PEP)-Hi instrument for the European Space Agency’s JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE) mission. She joined APL after completing postdoctoral work at the University of Tennessee, where she earned her Ph.D. and was the first Black woman to earn a doctorate degree from its Department of Nuclear Engineering. She was recently awarded the Science Spectrum Trailblazers Black Engineer of the Year Award, recognizing individuals who are creating paths for others in science, research technology and development.
Dr. Karen Stockstill-Cahill is a planetary geologist at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. She specializes in UV-MIR laboratory spectroscopy and experimental simulation of surface environmental conditions for airless planetary bodies. At APL, she manages the Laboratory for Spectroscopy under Planetary Environmental Conditions. In that capacity, she engages in many interdisciplinary collaborations ranging from planetary fundamental research to engineering development projects. She graduated with a Ph.D. in Planetary Geology from the University of Tennessee Knoxville in 2005. Before coming to APL, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa and the Smithsonian Institution and a Senior Scientist at the Planetary Science Institute.
Anna Martin is a geologist with experience in laboratory analyses of geologic samples, image processing, and analysis of planetary datasets. Her lab research focuses on analyzing lunar Apollo samples, instrument calibration, phase-ratio image analysis, geochemical and geotechnical analysis of lunar regolith simulants and has field experience studying impact craters and lunar analogs. As a team member of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) and Miniature Radio-Frequency (Mini-RF) instruments abord the LRO, she has extensive experience with creating high-precision, geodetically-controlled mosaics of high-interest lunar features to better understand lunar regions and impact craters. She currently works in the APL Space Exploration Sector under the Moon and Rocky Planets group.
Dr. Angela Dapremont is a Post Doctoral Fellow at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. As a member of the Lab’s Planetary Exploration Group, Dr. Dapremont provides policy, strategy, and recruitment support to the Lunar Surface Innovation Consortium. Dr. Dapremont’s scientific research is focused on understanding the composition of terrestrial bodies in the solar system. Her research publications have incorporated datasets from numerous orbital remote sensing missions including the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM), the Context Camera (CTX), and the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera currently orbiting Mars. Dr. Dapremont also uses Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) data to investigate lunar surface composition and is an Affiliate of the Lunar Trailblazer mission.
