Ronald Terik Daly

Dr. Terik Daly of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) investigates how the solar system formed and changes through time and helps develop spacecraft missions that address pressing questions in planetary science and planetary defense. He was the Deputy Instrument Scientist for the camera that flew on the DART, which was NASA’s first planetary defense mission test mission. He is a coinvestigator and working group lead for the OSIRIS-APEX mission, which will rendezvous with asteroid Apophis in 2029, as well as a participating scientist on the JAXA-led MMX mission that will return samples from Phobos. He is the principal investigator for multiple NASA-funded grants. He publishes in peer-reviewed journals such as Nature and regularly presents at international conferences, including invited talks at meetings such as the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union.
