About Ron Ballouz
My research focuses on understanding the physical mechanisms that might change the surfaces and interiors of asteroids. The overarching questions that I try to address with my research are (1) how is the origin of life on Earth tied to the delivery of water and organic material by asteroid impacts, and (2) what is the present impact threat from asteroids to Earth’s biosphere.
