His Mars-based research focuses on the origin and evolution of the Martian crust, the nature and timing of weathering and hydrothermal alteration, and the role of climate change in modification and evolution of the surface. He earned a bachelor's degree in geology from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, and his doctorate in geological sciences from Brown University. He has been a faculty member at Brown since 1991. Mustard is a science team member on the Omega spectrometer experiment on the European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft and is the Deputy Principal Investigator for the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars experiment on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
