Extensive background in planetary mapping and kinematic analysis of terrestrial planets, moons and asteroids.  Designed numerical models to explain structural phenomenon on Mars, Venus, Eros, Vesta and Ceres. Research projects include: 1) Mapping and analysis of linear features on 1Ceres, 4Vesta and 433Eros; 2) Geologic mapping of 1Ceres and 4Vesta; 3) Mapping, structural analysis, and numerical modeling of giant polygons on Mars; 4) Topographic analysis and numerical modeling of quasi-circular depressions (QCDs) in the northern lowlands of Mars; 5) Spectroscopic analysis of outcrops in the Argyre basin and NW Noachis Terra, Mars using CRISM data; 6) Kinematic mapping and structural analysis of lineaments around Irnini Mons, Venus; 7) Geomorphic mapping of the intra-ejecta dark plains around the Caloris basin, Mercury; 8) Geologic mapping of the Caloris basin, Mercury.
