Dana Burton's research follows scientists’ search for evidence of life in space and the ways they imagine, theorize, and evaluate conceptions of biosignatures, habitability, and the abiotic-biotic threshold in their work. Dana is currently a Young Scientist in the Blue Marble Space Institute of Science and NASA Ames. Her fieldwork is funded by Wenner-Gren Foundation and National Science Foundation. She also completed archival research as a Society for the History of Technology Fellow at the Library of Congress and NASA Headquarters. Dana endeavors to contribute to a collaborative entanglement between the sciences and social sciences.
