Geoscience professor Arya Udry is an expert on planetary igneous petrology, including Martian petrology.
Udry's research aims to better understand the general evolution of Mars through meteorite and rover data analyses. Under the support of UNLV and NASA, she has studied rocks measured at the Martian surface by rovers. Udry's research also expands to the asteroid belt, with investigation of enstatite-rich meteorites that are comparative to those found on the planet Mercury.
