Brief Bio


Dr. Yeo is a planetary scientist with a research focus on dust and plasma interactions. She studies fundamental processes that enable human exploration of the moon and beyond.

Current Projects


Survivability of Organics on Lunar Soil

Development of an experiment to study the survivability of organic molecules like amino acids on lunar soil under conditions similar to the moon – high vacuum, energetic hydrogen plasma and UV irradiation. 



Hydroxylation of Lunar Soil

Measuring, using real-time infrared spectroscopy, the hydroxylation (production of OH) on lunar soil as it is irradiated by a high energy hydrogen plasma.
