I am a planetary geologist with experience in visible-light and radar remote sensing of the Moon and icy satellites of Juptier and Saturn. My research focuses on understanding geological and geophysical processes operating on planetary surfaces, with a focus on icy satellite tectonics and lunar volatiles. I am currently the Principal Investigator for the Miniature Radio Frequency (Mini-RF) instrument on the NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, a Co-Investigator on the EIS and REASON instruments on the NASA Europa Clipper mission, a Co-Investigator on the RIME instrument on the ESA Jupiter Icy Moon Explorer (JUICE) mission, and a participating scientist for the ISS instrument on the NASA Cassini mission.
