Miki Nakajima

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Carnegie Institution for Science. My goal is to build theoretical models to reconcile geochemical, geophysical and astronomical observations with analytical and numerical methods. My research focuses on the formation and evolution of terrestrial planets and my current work includes investigations on the origins of the Earth-Moon systems, exomoons and Enceladus plumes, Martian moons, planetary impact processes, and mantle evolution.


I accepted a tenure-track assistant professor position at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Rochester starting July 2018. I will have a secondary appointment at the Department of Physics and Astronomy. I am looking for graduate students and postdocs who are excited to explore Earth, the solar system and beyond!
