Marcus Piquette

I work with Mihaly Horányi studying the interplanetary dust environment with instrumentation and simulation. I'm the lead for the Student Dust Counter aboard New Horizons currently making in-situ measurements of the dust environment in the Kuiper Belt. We also model the dusty plasma environment of airless bodies like the moon.
