Paul Hayne




Tenure Track Faculty


Paul Hayne is a planetary scientist studying the surfaces and atmospheres of terrestrial planets and icy moons. His research focuses on thermal conditions driving changes in the stability of ice on these planetary bodies, and their effects on climate and habitability. In pursuit of these research goals, Dr. Hayne leads the development of new spacecraft missions and instrumentation, and uses the latest data along with innovative computational models to better understand planetary phenomena.
