Welcome to my site! My name is Peter Gao and I am currently a NASA Postdoctoral Program Fellow at NASA Ames Research Center working with Mark Marley. My research focuses on aerosols and chemistry in planetary atmospheres within and beyond the Solar System.

I will be starting as a 51 Pegasi b Postdoctoral Fellow at University of California Berkeley in the fall of 2017! Here's an article about that.

I recieved my PhD in Planetary Science from Caltech, where I worked with Yuk L. Yung on modeling the clouds and hazes of Venus, Titan, and Pluto, and the atmospheric evolution of terrestrial worlds orbiting M dwarf stars.

Feel free to browse through my CV below if you want to know more about what I do. In the meantime, here's how you can contact me:
