I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences and a Research Associate at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, both at the University of Colorado. My main research interests are the geologic, hydrologic, and climatic histories of the planet Mars and all things related. In particular, I work on problems dealing with past fluvial erosion on Mars, Martian volcanoes, geologic mapping, habitable environments, aqueous geochemical modeling, and terrestrial analog work. New data, including high-resolution topographic data and images, are shedding light on the planet Mars and upcoming missions will continue to change our perceptions of this planet. Before we die, we will likely have answered one of the greatest questions: Are we alone? I want to be part of that grand effort.
