Alexia Kubas

Astronomy & Space Sciences


Hello there! My name is Alexia, and I am a first-year graduate student interested in astrobiology and the icy moons of our Solar System.

I graduated from the University of Arizona in 2022 with a B.S. in Astronomy and minors in Physics, Mathematics, and Planetary Sciences. As an undergraduate, my primary research focus was lunar impact cratering processes. Specifically, I analyzed crater size–frequency distributions across the ejecta and interior of Giordano Bruno crater to determine which impact processes may have occurred there (e.g., self-secondary cratering). I have a soft spot for the marvels of the outer Solar System, and my favorite celestial body is Enceladus!

In my free time, I love singing, reading, drinking coffee, and going on nature walks.
