As the recipient of the 2015 Terra Nova Young Innovator award, Penny has worked on research spanning environmental and astrobiological fields of study. Penny will discuss how her research group uses the rocks and groundwater of NL to explore questions of greenhouse gas fluxes, carbon sequestration, and life detection on other worlds.
