Mostly I study Moon rocks to understand their origins. 
Sometimes I study Earth rocks to better understand Moon rocks. 

I lie under starlit sky
And the seasons change in the blink of an eye
I watch as the planets turn
And the old stars die and the young stars burn

-Lord Huron

I'm a PhD candidate studying lunar petrology and geochemistry. I study a variety of rocks, from impact breccias to basalts. I like studying rocks because they are a physical portion of a larger process, such as lunar volcanism, or impact cratering. By using multiple analytical techniques, like an electron microprobe and a transmission electron microscope, I can gain geochemical, structural, and mineralogical information about the rocks I study.
