Content / Work

Mark Wieczorek's research focuses on using geophysical data (topography, gravity, and magnetic fields) and remotely sensed geochemical data to decipher the interior structure and geologic evolution of the terrestrial planets and moons. He is a co-investigator of several past and upcoming missions, including the orbiting SMART-1 and Chandrayaan-1 X-ray fluorescence spectrometers, NASA's lunar gravity mapping mission GRAIL, NASA's geophysical mission to Mars, Insight, NASA's mission to Psyche, the Lunar Vertex mission to investigate the Reiner-gamma magnetic anomaly, and the laser altimeters on ESA's BepiColombo mission to Mercury and JUICE mission to Ganymede. He was the leader of the Planetary and Space Sciences group at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris from 2012 to 2016, and he was the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Geophysical Research Planets from 2011 to 2015. From 2017 to 2022, he worked at the Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur as part of the Laboratoire Lagrange. Currently, he is a director of research (CNRS) at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris.
