I am the Science Manager of the NASA/Keck Reflectance Experiment Laboratory (RELAB), a NASA-supported spectroscopy facility at Brown that operates from 0.3 to 25 mm. I am the Principal Investigator for NASA's Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) experiment to be launched to the Moon in early 2008 and I am also Co-Investigator on Dawn, a mission to explore the asteroids Vesta and Ceres.
