Research

My research primarily involves combining geophysical modeling with spacecraft observations to constrain the evolution of solid body surfaces and interiors in our solar system. At the moment, I am most active in the areas of planetary interiors (especially icy moons), planetary magnetism (especial lunar magnetism), and space weathering.

Icy Satellite Interiors

Titan, Enceladus, and More...

Lunar Magnetism

Magnetic Anomalies in the Crust...

Space Weathering

Solar Wind and the Color of Moon...

About Me

I am currently a Miller Fellow at the University of California Berkeley, hosted in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science by Michael Manga. I completed my PhD in August of 2015 in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of California Santa Cruz. My PhD advisors were Ian Garrick-Bethell and Francis Nimmo. My dissertation committee also included Gary Glatzmaier and Jasper Halekas.
