1985, Ph.D. in Geophysics, University of Southern California
1981, M.S. in Geophysics, University of Southern California
1976, B.S. in Geology, University of Miami

My research includes analysis of impact melt in lunar craters and the rheology of impact melt flows, secondary cratering processes associated with lunar impact craters and implications for ejecta and cratering chronology, and the geophysics of impact craters. I participated in the international team that conducted the ICDP-USGS deep drilling project at the Chesapeake Bay Crater, and also conducted field investigations at impact sites in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. I'm currently working with the LROC imaging experiment on the NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, and conducted the search for US and Soviet robotic spacecraft on the lunar surface.
