My research uses spectroscopy and low-temperature geochemistry to unpack the water-rock record of planetary surfaces.
In particular, I am interested in spatial and temporal variations in surface conditions and the mineral assemblages those conditions produce in the sub/surface. My work on planetary surfaces has implications for astrobiology and habitability, as well as our understanding mineral behavior in the rock record as a whole.
I'm currently a postdoc at JPL/Caltech working with Abigail Fraeman and Laurie Barge. I am also a funded Participating Scientist on the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity rover mission.
