I am pursuing a PhD in Planetary Geology and Geomorphology. I completed a 25-year career in the USAF as an F-16 pilot and Defense Attache before starting the Geology program here at “State.”
My research interests include landscape evolution on Earth and Mars and mass wasting processes throughout the solar system. I am conducting Mars-Earth analog studies of Sacra Mensa (Mars) and the Grand Mesa (Colorado) as well as Valles Marineris (Mars) and Rio Chama Canyon (New Mexico). I am also interested in the geophysical surveys of archeological sites in New Mexico.
