As a planetary scientist, I investigate how the solar system formed and changes through time. I use a variety of methods in my work, including laboratory experiments, computer models, and spacecraft data analysis. I focus on fundamental processes such as impact cratering, an approach that allows me to tackle problems on a range of objects in the solar system. I contribute to efforts to defend Earth against the hazards posed by asteroids and comets. I am the Deputy Instrument Scientist for the camera, called DRACO, that will fly on NASA’s first planetary defense mission, DART. I am also part of the Small Body Mapping Tool (SBMT) development team. The SBMT is a 3D data visualization and analysis tool developed at APL that is used by researchers around the world. I publish research results in peer-reviewed journals and regularly present at international conferences, including invited talks at meetings such as the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union. I am the Principal Investigator for multiple NASA-funded grants. Education and outreach are vital parts of my professional identity, and I regularly mentor high-school students through APL’s ASPIRE program and volunteer to support other STEM outreach activities.
