Daniella (“Dani”) DellaGiustina is a Mexican-American scientist at the University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory in Tucson, Arizona. Her research focuses on the remote sensing of asteroid surfaces and planetary seismology. In particular, she investigates data sets collected by robotic spacecraft and through fieldwork in terrestrial “analogs”, which are sites on Earth that have similarities to other places in the solar system.  She is a co-investigator on NASA’s OSIRIS-REx sample return mission currently visiting asteroid Bennu, where she leads the image processing team.
