Ninos Hermis
Research Graduate Student

Education
  • M.S., Physics, California State University Los Angeles (2018)
  • B.S., Earth Science (planetary science focus, Minor Astrophysics), University of California Santa Cruz (2013)

Research Interests

I have worked on a variety of projects at JPL from Exoplanets to Earth Science. I am currently interested in working on hydrothermal vent research pertaining to the origins of life on early Earth and applying similar experiments to potential habitability on other worlds. I also work on electrochemical fuel cell experiments for application towards potential habitability of Icy Moons in our Solar System. See www.ninoshermis.com or www.lauriebarge.com for more information.
