I am interested in field and structural geology, as well as numerical modeling. In the summer of 2015 I worked at the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) under DR. David Kring, where I became the first undergraduate to do field work in Meteor Crater, AZ, and studied the differential vertical and radial displacement along faults in the crater wall during formation. I am also working on a senior thesis with Dr. Adrian Lenardic, where we will try to model the tiger stripes on Enceladus in the hopes of understanding the mechanisms that control them. I work on terrestrial as well as planetary problems.

I am secretly Captain America.
