Research Projects

A list of the scientific research projects I've undertaken and some background on each.

This is me presenting at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in March 2018

Haumea's Internal Evolution

My work focuses on how Haumea's internal geophysical and geochemical evolution have changed its observable characteristics and shaped it into its present state.

Cryovolcanism on Charon: How and When?

This is a new project funded through the Solar System Workings program (NASA ROSES) in July 2021. I am the Science PI.

Europa's Microfeatures

A short description of the work I've done on Europa's smallest observable features (prior to Europa Clipper imaging) and what they imply for Europa's subsurface structure.

Asteroid 25143 Itokawa and Other Small Bodies

What makes Itokawa such an unusual asteroid?

The VALENTInE Mission Concept to Venus

This is the project I worked on as a part of the 2020 JPL Planetary Science Summer School.

The Chicxulub Impactor

It was an asteroid. Ask me how we learned that.
