Dr. Kat Volk is a staff scientist at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory researching Kuiper Belt Object, planetary dynamics, and exoplanet, especially in modeling orbital dynamics. Teddy Kareta is a PhD candidate also at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory studying the life cycle of comets using primarily imaging and spectroscopic observations.
