Please join us as we welcome Dr. Darlene Lim, a geobiologist based at the NASA Ames Research Center, who is actively involved in the development of operational concepts for human scientific exploration of our solar system. She is currently the PI of BASALT (Biologic Analog Science Associated with Lava Terrains), PI of the Pavilion Lake Research Project, and Deputy PI of FINESSE (Field Investigations to Enable Solar System Science and Exploration).

Both programs are focused on real (non-simulated) science and exploration activities that seamlessly blend field science research with the development of human exploration tools, technologies, and concepts that serve to directly inform various NASA Design Reference Missions.
