Moving across the world to follow his passion: A conversation with James Rogers, Ph.D., NASA NPP Fellow

  1. Moving across the world to follow his passion: A conversation with James Rogers, Ph.D., NASA NPP Fellow ORAU 23:23

James Rogers, Ph.D., is an astrobiologist in the NASA Postdoctoral Program. He studies exoplanets (extra-solar bodies like planets, asteroids, etc.). Rogers says scientists have detected thousands of exoplanets orbiting stars throughout the galaxy. Studying exoplanets and planet formation can help us piece together how our solar system fits into the galaxy and the universe. In this conversation, Rogers talks to host Michael Holtz about his fellowship, making the transition from England to the United States, the role of mentorship and collaboration in his work, and what comes next during his fellowship.
