Title: Limited Recharge of the Highland Aquifer on Early Mars
Biography: Eric Hiatt is a doctoral student the Jackson School of Geoscience and a research assistant at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics. He is interested in the dynamic coupling between crater formation and hydrosphere on early Noachian Mars. He is specifically interested in the potential for post impact hydrothermal system communication via groundwater flow and the implications for astrobiology. He is focused on applied mathematics, numerical simulations, remote sensing, geochronology, and Earth analogues as tools for understanding Mars’ past. Eric is also a full-time dad to daughters Madilyn and Adrianna (AJ).
