Charity Phillips-Lander

Senior Research Scientist In Astrobiology
Southwest Research Institute

Charity studies life in extreme environments on Earth (high/low temperatures, pH, radiation, as well as briny, dry, etc) to help develop instrumentation and missions to search for life elsewhere. She is currently leading the development of an Astronaut Raman instrument for ISRU and Astrobiology (ARIA) and the development of the Mars Astrobiology Cave and Internal habitability explore (MACIE) mission concept. She also currently leads a team of researchers who are determining the habitable volume of microenvironments in Ocean Worlds (e.g., Europa and Enceladus) ice shells.
