She obtained a B.Sc. in astronomy and Ph.D. in planetary science from University College London, UK. Her research expertise is on planetary geology and volcanology and she has studied Mars, Io, and Titan. She was a member of Galileo’s Near-Infrared Mapping Spectrometer team from 1991-2003 and of the Cassini Titan Radar Mapper (2003-2019). She is the PI of the NASA Astrobiology Institute project “Habitability of Hydrocarbon Worlds: Titan and Beyond”. She is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Geological Society of America, and the American Geophysical Union. She has received several awards including the Carl Sagan Medal from the American Astronomical Society, the Ambassador Award from the American Geophysical Union, and two NASA Exceptional Public Service Medals.
Gerald (Jerry) Dickens is a Professor in the Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences at Rice University (USA). His research interests include Cenozoic climate change, marine methane cycling, tropical mixed siliciclastic/carbonate margins and economic geology. He has been the past editor of “Paleoceanography” and “GSA Today”, and is a current editor for “Geology”. He is a Fellow of GSA and AGU. Jerry is particularly excited to visit Brazil for the first time to meet talented people from a country of considerable general intrigue and whose borders also hold fantastic opportunities to collaborate on all his primary scientific interests. Indeed, he is already one of the main proponents for the upcoming 2021 IODP Expedition 394 to study methane cycling on Rio Grande Cone.
Michel Jébrak is an Emeritus Professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Science at the Université du Québec à Montréal (Canada). where he has also served as Vice-President, Research and Art. He is teaching at UQAT (Canada), Université de Lorrraine and Université de Guyane (France). He was involved in the development of mineral exploration research groups and chairs in France and Canada and is the director of the scientific committee of Ouranos, a center on climatic changes and of the Professional Order of geologists in Quebec. His research interest focus on economic geology of base and precious metal deposits in the continental crust and on the social impact of the mining industry, from communities to geopolitics. He works as an expert for private and public entities worldwide. He is associated editor of Terra Nova and Geologues journals, and members of several associations in Europe and America. He received the Palmes académiques in France. the Barlow price of the Royal Society of Canada and several prices from other Canadian organizations.
