While holding two administrative positions at the University of Hawaii, much of my time is devoted to topics other than my research. However, I still have a strong interest is the geology of Mars. Specifically, I continue to have a strong interest in the analysis of impact craters and volcanoes on Mars, even though I do not have any funding for these projects at this time. Unfortunately, this means that I am not looking for any new graduate students to work on projects right now. The main research that I am conducting right now is a geologic analysis of an impact crater on Mars called Tooting:
Mars Geology: Tooting Crater
I have also worked on several projects that created their own web sites. I am not actively involved in any of these efforts at this time, but you might like to take a look at the following to see what I have worked on in the past:
