DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Kevin W. Lewis

Kevin Lewis is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Johns Hopkins Univ. He obtained his PhD from Caltech.

Lewis’s research focuses on problems in planetary geophysics, from the scale of a grain of sand all the way up to the crust of a planet. He has worked in depth on the nature of sedimentary rocks on Mars, and what they might record about that planet's past climate and habitability.  He is also interested in understanding the large-scale properties of planetary lithospheres using magnetic, gravity, and topography data sets.  (source:

Coffee, tea and sweets will be served before the lecture at 10:30am.

The seminar host is Steve Shirey.
