Dr. Mark Boslough received a BS in physics from Colorado State University and his MS and PhD in applied physics from the California Institute of Technology. His graduate research focused on impact physics, geophysics, shock wave properties, and high-pressure equations of state of rocks and minerals.
In recent years Mark has led a variety of projects in other domains, including climate modeling and evolutionary computing. Renewed interest in his past research on cometary and asteroid impacts has brought him back into that field armed with the power of the current generation of supercomputers and codes.
Mark is passionate about developing and implementing novel methods to aggregate individual human thoughts and ideas as a massively parallel system, and harnessing that collective intelligence to deal with our most difficult and urgent national security problems including climate change, national intelligence, and energy independence.
