- About PSI
Dr. Catherine Johnson's research encompasses a variety of geophysical studies of Mercury, Venus, Earth, the Moon and Mars. Most of her work focuses on modeling and interpretation of geophysical data sets: global and regional topography, gravity, and magnetic data, and (lunar) seismic data. The common goal of these investigations is to understand the internal structure and the long-term evolution of these bodies.
Dr. Johnson received her PhD in Geophysics in 1994 from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD. She was a professor of Geophysics at Scripps until 2007, when she became a professor of Geophysics at the University of British Columbia, a position which she has maintained since joining PSI In 2010.
Fellow, American Geophysical Society
