I am pursuing a PhD in Planetary Geomorphology as a non-traditional student. 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.” I taught at Georgetown University in the School of Foreign Service as a National Defense Fellow in 2008 and hope to return to teaching when I complete my studies.
My research interests include the intersections of the fields of geomorphology and planetary science. My areas of interest include: Mass Wasting and meteorite impacts on Mars, Methane Lakes on Titan and Vulcanism throughout the Solar System.
