Bachelors of Science, Geology2017, Arizona State University
I am a geologist with experience in image processing and analysis of planetary datasets. After college graduation, I worked at the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) Science Operations Center at Arizona State University where I managed a portion of their data product generation pipeline. I have experience with creating high-precision, geodetically controlled and photometricallly corrected mosaics of high-interest lunar features, as well as with image analysis to better understand permanently shadowed regions (PSRs) in the lunar polar regions. At APL, I have created data products for other NASA missions, supported development of the Small Body Mapping Tool (SBMT) with product and version releases, and conducted work in research labs. My lab experience consists of analyzing lunar Apollo samples in the Meteorite Lab, instrument calibration for Dragonfly Geophysics and Meteorology Package (DraGMet) for the Dragonfly mission to Saturn's moon Titan in the ICELand Lab, and phase-ratio image analysis for the Planetary Surface Textures Lab (PSTL). One of things I love most is being able to participate in public outreach events to share my knowledge about the Moon and NASA’s next steps for human exploration of the solar system.
