Brett Denevi has been involved in NASA mission and instrument teams at all phases and in roles that include Deputy PI (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera), Deputy Instrument Scientist (Mercury Dual Imaging System, MESSENGER), Participating Scientist (Dawn), and Co-I (ShadowCam, Korean Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter). She has worked on laboratory and in-flight calibration of multiple flight instruments, and is experienced in operations, planning, and targeting (LROC, MESSENGER). She has served in various science team and community leadership roles (e.g., Co-Chair of the MESSENGER Geology Discipline Group, DPI of LROC, and Vice Chair of the Lunar Exploration Analysis Group). Her research focuses on the origin and evolution of planetary crusts, regolith generation and modification, and space weathering, and has resulted in over 80 peer-reviewed publications. Brett is the recipient of the 2015 Maryland Academy of Science Outstanding Young Scientist award, a NASA Early Career Fellowship, seven NASA group achievement awards, and asteroid 9026 Denevi was named in her honor.
