Welcome to my website!
I am currently a Research Specialist with the Department of Geosciences at Princeton University.
My field of interest is planetary science, particularly small Solar System bodies, specifically asteroids, the application of traditional geological techniques to terrestrial bodies, and comparative planetary science, especially in regards to planetary evolution. My current research involves developing a quantitative way to classify terrain on Venus from Magellan topography. More can be read on my Research page.
