Most of my research revolves around water on Mars and its potential for life. I approach this problem from several aspects: terrestrial analog fieldwork, laboratory experiments, theoretical modeling, geologic mapping and analysis of new Mars data. I work on problems regarding impact cratering, volcanism, geochemistry, fluvial geomorphology and hydrology, and Mercurian volcanism and tectonics. I also direct CU's Center for Astrobiology.
