Research Interests:
(Research Corp. UH) Impact cratering, Planetary stratigraphy, Evolution of planetary terrains

  • The origin of the different types of fluidized ejecta craters on Mars, their ejecta emplacement mechanisms and their relationships to the sources and sinks of Martian volatiles.

  • Global gradation history of the surface of Mars, in particular the major climate changes that have affected the morphology of landforms.

  • Numerical and computer modeling studies of the effects of the different gradational processes that have operated on Mars on crater morphology.

  • Modeling studies of sedimentation and erosion by ejecta of basin-size impact events.

  • Lunar basin chronology and its relationship to highlands plains deposits based on impact crater density and erosional state.

  • Participating scientist on Mars Odyssey mission to study the different types of impact craters and their origins.
