Ana Carolina de Souza Feliciano is a post-doctoral fellow at the Florida Space Institute, under the supervision of Dr. Noemi Pinilla-Alonso. She is part of UCF’s Preeminent Postdoctoral Program. The main interest of Carol de Souza-Feliciano is to study the surface composition of trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs), minor bodies of the Solar System that lie beyond Neptune. In particular, she is interested in better understanding the diversity of the entire population using ground- and space-based facilities. Due to that, she is involved in DiSCo-TNOs: Discovering the composition of the trans-Neptunian objects, icy embryos for planet formation, a James Webb Space Telescope program that will observe almost 60 TNOs led by Dr. Noemí Pinilla-Alonso.
