About The Speaker

Dr. Jayesh Das received his PhD from Physical Research Laboratory, India. During his PhD studies, using samples from lunar, Martian and primitive meteorites, Dr. Das investigated early stages of solar system evolution and planet formation. At Washington University in St. Louis and the McDonnell Center for Space Sciences, Dr. Das continued his research as a post-doctoral researcher. In 2012, Dr. Das moved to Syracuse University to work with the New York Center for Astrobiology. Dr. Das collaborated with other researchers of the center to understand the evolution of the Moon, and analyzed samples that were collected by Apollo 17 crew members. Very recently, Dr. Das joined EAG laboratories and is involved in developing new test methods for devices used in a range of applications including space missions and medical implants.
