Dr. Neyda Abreu arrived to Penn State DuBois in 2007 and is currently an Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Geology. Dr. Abreu is a planetary mineralogist and geochemist who is particularly interested in the processes that took place in the solar nebula and protoplanets and how they shaped evolution of the early solar system. In order to understand these processes, she studies some of the most primitive meteorites, called carbonaceous chondrites with the aid of optical and electron microscopes. Dr. Abreu is very interested in introducing undergraduate student to space, materials, and/or space materials.
