Welcome to my online portfolio.

I am currently a graduate student at Brown University pursuing a Ph.D. in Geological Sciences. I am broadly interested in geophysics and the implementation of numerical analyses to assess problems in planetary geoscience. My active research covers a diverse range of topics including the hydrology and glaciology of Earth and Mars, as well as the geology and petrology of impact melt deposits on the Moon. To learn more about myself, my research, and my other professional activies, please follow the links in the upper navigation bar.
