Marshall joined UW Physics in 2012 and completed his Master's in 2014. He also joined UW Astrobiology in 2014, and completed a Graduate Certificate in Astrobiology in 2016. After some time engaged in research with the Physics Education Group, Marshall ultimately shifted to space plasma simulation and magnetic sounding in 2017. Marshall was awarded a highly competitive NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship in 2018, for up to 3 years of funding for his research.
Before coming to UW, Marshall worked as a technician or researcher at UC Davis and in Chooz, France. At UC Davis, he restored an aging X-ray photoelectron spectrometer and used it to study surface properties, upgraded an indium vapor deposition system to be more reliable and easier to use, and built a liquid nitrogen analogue of the Large Underground Xenon experiment for testing potential upgrades. In Chooz, Marshall was part of an international collaboration working to fill one of the delicate Double Chooz neutrino detectors with scintillator fluid.
