Introducing the Inaugural DPS-NSBP Speaker Awardee: Dr. Jasmine Bayron

As we reach the end of Black History Month, the DPS is thrilled to recognize Dr. Jasmine Bayron, from the American Museum of Natural History and City University of New York.  Dr. Bayron is the first awardee from the new Joint Speaker Program established between DPS and the National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP), Earth and Planetary Systems Sciences (EPSS) section, based on her excellent NSBP 2021 meeting presentation, “Moapa Valley (CM1): The Black Box of the CM Parent Asteroid.”

As the Joint DPS-NSBP Program Speaker, Dr. Bayron has been invited to speak at the DPS 2022 meeting, with expenses covered by DPS.  She also will be speaking at the Howard University Physics Department Colloquium Series, with support provided by the Planetary Geology, Geophysics and Geochemistry Laboratory at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.  The full AAS press release on Dr. Bayron’s selection can be found at news/inaugural-dps-nsbp-speaker-awardee-dr-bayron and information about the DPS-NSBP partnership can be found at leadership/nsbp_parnership.

We look forward to hearing from Dr. Bayron this October!
