What started as a rock and mineral collection hobby and love geology led to a dedicated journey to pursuing a career in planetary science research. In this episode. We follow the journey of University of Oslo, PhD student Elise Harrington who I met in Canada when I started my Master's degree in 2016. Since the start of her undergraduate degree, Elise has had numerous opportunities studying various topics in planetary science and travelled across the world to conduct intense research. Her journey has taken her to learning about the mountains of Venus, the far side of the Moon, meteorites, salt diapirs in the Canadian High Arctic, astronaut geology training in Germany, and now Martian salts in Norway. What all started from an interest in rocks, minerals, and fossils, Elise reached forward and found her passion for planetary science and space exploration.
She aspires to apply her scientifically and internationally diverse background to promote collaboration between space agencies and industries.
