Margaret Campbell-Brown

Margaret Campbell Brown HeadshotMargaret Campbell-Brown is a PHYSICIST and a Distinguished University Professor who models the paths of meteors once they enter Earth's atmosphere. She is also a member of the world-renown Meteor Physics Group at Western responsible for the characterization and analysis of the 10,000 tonne Chelyabinsk fireball that exploded over Russia with twenty-times the force of one of the nuclear bombs used in World War Two.

"Comets, asteroids, and meteors hold clues about how our solar system formed, so each time I'm involved in meteor modelling and analysis, I have the awesome opportunity to contribute to our understanding of how Earth came to be and perhaps even why it is able to support different forms of life."
