I founded and run the Exolith Lab, where we produce high-fidelity regolith simulants for Mars, the Moon, and asteroids.
I created and maintain the Planetary Simulant Database, a free resource with data on historic and current regolith simulants.
I write a quarterly newsletter called P Furiosus, highlighting new ideas in planetary and space science.
