About the Authors and Illustrator

Kanani K. M. Lee joined Yale’s Department of Geology & Geophysics as an Assistant Professor in 2008. She works on high-pressure and high-temperature experiments in the context of reproducing the extreme conditions in the Earth and other planets’ interiors. In particular among her many research interests, she investigates the composition of the Earth’s mantle and core, and the interactions in between the two vast regions that are essentially inaccessible at the surface.
