"Roger Jay Phillips"
A planetary geodynamicist, Phillips has studied Mercury, Venus, Mars, Earth and the moon. He was involved with eight planetary missions, including Magellan, the Mars Global Surveyor, MESSENGER, and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
He earned an undergraduate degree in geology from the Colorado School of Mines and master’s and doctoral degrees in applied geophysics from the University of California, Berkeley.
He began his career at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where he worked from 1968 until 1980 in various capacities. From 1979 to 1982, he was director of the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston.
