Bio

As a planetary geologist, I am interested in how and why planets look the way they do.

With remotely sensed data, laboratory and numerical modeling, and fieldwork in analog sites around the world, I seek to understand how volcanic, tectonic, and impact processes have shaped planetary surfaces.

At NC State, I have established the Planetary Research Group to explore what our world can tell us of other planetary bodies—and vice versa.
