As a planetary geologist, I study the moons, planets, and small bodies in our solar system. I figure out how these objects formed and how they have changed through time.

My research focuses on two key areas. First, I investigate what happens when objects in our solar system crash into each other. Such collisions, called impacts, sculpt all solid bodies. Consequently, impact cratering is arguably the most pervasive geological process. Understanding impacts is therefore critical to unraveling the secrets of solar system origin and evolution. Second, I investigate the geologic histories of small bodies in our solar system, including asteroids, comets, and small moons. In many cases, such objects are like time capsules from the early solar system. Studying these small, oddly-shaped objects reveals conditions in the early solar system, the conditions that ultimately led to the solar system--and Earth--that we know today. I publish my work in peer-reviewed journals and present at international conferences.

STEM education is also key part of my professional identity. I have five years of experience teaching at the pre-college and undergraduate levels. My learner-centered courses incorporate the latest research about how learning works. In 2014 a colleague and I jointly received the Reginald D. Archambault Award for Teaching Excellence with Distinction from Brown University.
