I run geophysical computer models to understand how the Moon evolved after it formed. Particularly, I am interested in how processes in the early solar system, such as impacts and tidal heating, may have affected the thermal evolution of the Moon. In addition to understanding how such processes may have influenced the solidification time and the structure of the lunar interior, my goal is to link the early Moon to data such as lunar topography, gravity, magnetism, and crust sample ages.
