Degree Field of Study Year Attained Institution Name
PhD Earth and Planetary Sciences 1996 Washington University
ScB Geology 1989 Brown University

My primary interests include remote sensing and in situ measurement of rocky planetary and solar system small body surface composition, morphology, stratigraphy, active geologic processes, and change detection. I am also interested in the hydrologic cycle and surface/atmosphere interface processes, including those in extreme environments. 

Locations of interest: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon, Eros, Mars, Galilean satellites, Enceladus, Titan, Triton, Pluto, Arrokoth, Exoplanets

Laboratory interests: Chemistry at the atmosphere-surface interface (Venus), space weathering on airless bodies (including dielectric breakdown), seismic shaking of regolith on small bodies, thermal effects on reflectance spectra.
