Research Interests:
Emeritus Faculty: Extraterrestrial materials, Planetary volcanology, Igneous processes, Exploration and utilization of space resources

I use a combination of petrology, geochemistry, field observations, remote sensing, and theory to address problems in planetary science. Most recent studies focus on igneous processes and planetary differentiation, but I spend some time trying to understand impact processes and their products. I have been particularly interested in making quantitative measurements of rock textures (e.g., crystal size distributions) as a tool for deducing the processes that operate to produce igneous rocks on the Earth and planets.
