Jael Stanton

Graduate Student Jael Stanton Jael is a second year Chemistry PhD student originally from Atlanta, Georgia. Preceding graduate school, she obtained her B.S. in Chemistry at Valdosta State University, and has conducted research focusing on nanomaterials, biotechnology, the stability of liquid water on Mars, and the plasma chemistry of Titan’s atmosphere. Since joining Dr. Bennett’s lab, she has worked on various projects, with a particular emphasis on the prebiotic formation of peptides and amino acids on meteorites. Future projects include investigating the atmospheric impact of Titan, and other kuiper belt objects, on terrestrial simulants, and using Raman spectroscopy to analyze space weathered meteorites.

Projects: Peptides, Space Weathering Environment for Exploring Planetary Surfaces (SWEEPS), Raman analysis of meteorites
