Meet Jonathon

Born in Kingman and raised in Phoenix, Jonathon Hill has lived, studied and worked in Tempe since 2000.

Passionate about space exploration since childhood, Jonathon earned degrees in Aerospace Engineering, Geological Sciences and Russian from ASU, culminating in the defense of his PhD in Spring 2022, which focuses on studying salt deposits on Mars left over from a period when Mars was more similar to the Earth.

For the past 15 years, Jonathon has worked as an engineer and scientist at the ASU Mars Space Flight Facility, operating ASU's camera on NASA's Mars Odyssey spacecraft and ASU's instruments on the Spirit and Opportunity Mars rovers. He has also provided engineering and scientific support to the University of Arizona's OSIRIS-REx asteroid sample return mission and NASA's Clipper mission, which will explore Jupiter's frozen ocean moon Europa.

After completing his PhD, Jonathon looks forward to using his unique combination of engineering and science skills to address more pressing issues on his favorite planet... Earth.
