Dr Louise Alexander is interested in planetary materials, particularly the composition of meteorites and Apollo samples. Her current research aims to study how the flux of galactic cosmic rays, have impacted the lunar surface and have changed with time.
Unlike the Earth, the Moon possesses an ancient surface with no atmosphere or magnetic field. Therefore the study contains records of galactic cosmic rays which can be used to help with the reconstruction of the galactic environment throughout the history of the Solar System. The ultimate aim of Louise’s research project is to assess the value of the lunar geological record for galactic astronomy.
