I am a 5th year graduate student at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at University of Arizona. My research interests include most problems relating to planetary geology. In particular, I am interested in mantle convection, tectonics, impact crater formation, and surface processes. With my Ph.D. advisor, Prof. Adam Showman, I am studying the thermal evolution of Io. I have also worked with Prof. Jay Melosh and Dr. Veronica Bray investigating the formation of central pit craters on Ganymede. Before arriving at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, I earned a B.A. in astronomy at Cornell University.
