Hamish Hay [he/him] graduated from the University of Arizona with a PhD in planetary sciences in May 2020. Originally from Scotland, UK, he has pursued a variety of topics in planetary science ever since his final year as a geophysics undergraduate at Imperial College London. His PhD dissertation focused on tidal heating of icy moon interiors, particularly within their subsurface oceans, where he developed his own geophysical fluid dynamics model to simulate tidal currents. At JPL, he will be further exploring the possible dynamical regimes of Europa’s ocean, and how these might impact the evolution of the moon’s ice shell and rotation. Outside of science, Hamish likes to go trail running, do woodworking, play the drums, and pet his cat.
