Curriculum Vitae:

Benjamin Fleury

Benjamin Fleury is a CALTECH Postdoctoral fellow at JPL carrying out research on the chemistry and habitability of icy worlds, particularly Saturn’s moon Titan and Jupiter’s moon Europa. He completed his PhD in planetary science at University of Versailles St-Quentin (France), where he studied organic chemistry in the early Earth’s atmosphere and in the Titan’s atmosphere using laboratory experiments.

  • Ph.D. in planetary science, University of Versailles St-Quentin, France (2015)
  • M.Sc. in atmospheric science, University of Orléans, France (2012)
  • B.Sc. in chemistry, University of Orléans, France (2010)

Research Interests
  • Chemistry and habitability of icy worlds (Titan, Europa)
  • Formation of organic matter in planetary atmospheres (Titan’s atmosphere, early Earth’s atmosphere)

Professional Experience
  • CALTECH Postdoctoral Fellow, Jet Propulsion Laboratory (2015-present)
  • Graduate student, University of Versailles St-Quentin (2012-2015)
  • Teaching assistant, University of Versailles St-Quentin (2013-2015)
