Maria Steinrueck

I am a first-year graduate student at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona.


My research focuses on studying the atmospheres of exoplanets with three-dimensional numerical simulations (so-called General Circulation Models or GCM).

Disequilibrium chemistry on Hot Jupiters

I am working with Adam Showman and Vivien Parmentier. In my current project I try to understand the effect of including CO/CH4 disequilibrium chemistry in the General Circulation Model that our group is currently using to simulate the atmospheres of Hot Jupiters (SPARC/MITgcm).
