About Dr Rosaly Lopes
Dr. Rosaly M. C. Lopes is Directorate Scientist for the Planetary Science Directorate and a Senior Research Scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology. Dr. Lopes was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She has a Bachelor of Sciences in Astronomy and a Ph.D. in Planetary Sciences from University College London (part of the University of London, UK). Her major research interests are planetary and terrestrial geology and volcanology. During her Ph.D. she travelled extensively to active volcanoes, particularly Mount Etna in Sicily, and became a member of the U.K.'s Volcanic Eruption Surveillance Team. Dr. Lopes joined JPL as National Research Council Fellow in 1989 and, in 1991, became a JPL employee and a member of the Galileo Flight Project, a mission to Jupiter. She was responsible for observations of Jupiter's volcanic moon Io from 1996 to 2001, using Galileo's Near-infrared Mapping Spectrometer. During this exciting period of her career, she discovered 71 active volcanoes on Io, for which she was honoured in the 2006 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records as the discoverer of the most active volcanoes anywhere.
Dr. Lopes’s publications include over 140 peer-reviewed scientific publications and eight books, "The Volcano Adventure Guide" (Cambridge University Press, 2005; Portuguese translation 2008), "Volcanic Worlds: Exploring the Solar System Volcanoes" (Praxis-Springer, 2004; co-edited by Tracy Gregg), "Io After Galileo" (Praxis-Springer, 2007, co-edited by John Spencer), "Alien Volcanoes" (John Hopkins Press, 2008, co-authored by Michael Carroll), "Volcanoes: A Beginner's Guide" (Oneworld Publishing Co., UK, 2011, also a book on tape), "Modelling Volcanic Processes" (Cambridge University Press, 2013, co-edited with S. Fagents and T. Gregg), "Alien Seas" (Praxis, 2013, co-edited with Michael Carroll) and “Antarctica: Earth’s Own Ice World” (Springer, 2018, with Michael Carroll). She was honoured to have Sally Ride write the Foreword for "Volcanic Worlds", the first planetary science book to have all its chapters written by female scientists, and to have Arthur C. Clarke and James Cameron write the Forewords for, respectively, "Alien Volcanoes" and "Alien Seas".
In addition to her science work, Dr Lopes is a strong supporter of education, diversity, and outreach, nationally and internationally. She has given numerous public lectures in the US and abroad, on every continent including Antarctica. She has been active in the media, giving hundreds of interviews, and has been featured on over twenty TV documentaries and shows in the US alone, including for National Geographic, Discovery, Science Channel, PBS, The Weather Channel and History channel.
