Julie Rathbun Personal/Professional Page


Julie A. Rathbun, Senior Scientist, PhD Cornell University: Dr. Rathbun did her graduate work with Steven W. Squyres at Cornell University. Since then, she has concentrated her efforts on studying surfaces of outer planet satellites. She has been involved in the Galileo, Cassini, and New Horizons missions. In addition, she uses ground-based telescopes in Hawaii to monitor active volcanoes on Io. From these data, she developed a model to explain how Loki, the most powerful volcano on Io, operates. She is currently using New Horizons data to determine which volcanoes were most recently active.

Dr. Rathbun is also an associate professor of Physics at the University of Redlands. In addition to teaching the core physics courses, she has developed classes in amusement park physics, an interdisciplinary class in geology and art, and a travel course to study Hawaiian volcanoes
