đź‘˝ hi there, my name is Lu.

I am a NPP Postdoctoral Fellow at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center & Georgetown University.

My research is focused on astrobiology and the search for life in the universe. I use experimental and computational tools in combination with flight capable instruments like mass spectrometers to look for signatures of life on other planets, especially those that are not based on Terran biochemistry— otherwise known as “life as we don’t know it”.
