Morgan Cox is an undergraduate who joined the Desert Fireball Network in November 2015 working on decoding the timing of fireball trajectories. Along with working on data processing of fireballs, she also works with accessory minerals from Archean and Hadean populations, looking for shock deformation in order to decipher the Earth’s impact history.

Morgan won the 2016 Eugene M. Shoemaker Impact Cratering Award from the Lunar and Planetary Sciences Institute and has presented her work on shocked minerals at international conferences and looks forward to her path in academia by starting a PhD focusing on uncovering more about the impact history of the early earth and the solar system.
