I'm a postdoctoral scholar studying planetary geology in the Planetary Sciences Group at UCF. I recently founded the Exolith Lab to make high-quality regolith simulants available to the community.

I'm interested in planetary materials, including their early evolution in the solar system, re-creating their exotic properties in the lab, and extracting them sustainably as space resources.

Upcoming talks:

Dec 11, 2:28pm: Ancient Hydrated Silicates in the Martian Deep: Crustal Density, Water Budget, and Astrobiology. 2018 AGU Fall Meeting, Walter E. Washington Convention Center 206.

Current projects:

1. Carbonaceous muds (Recent abstract).

2. Martian clay formation and noble gas sequestration in the pre-Noachian (Recent publication).

3. High fidelity regolith simulants (Recent publication).
