Worked with Dr. Adrian Lenardic and Dr. Helge Gonnermann to create a numerical model predicting the long-term deformation of the ice shell in the South Polar Region of Enceladus, a moon of Saturn, as the result of sustained tectonic activity at the large fissures known as the Tiger Stripes. Research presented as senior thesis: Tectonic history of Enceladus's SPT and its ties to the formation of the tiger stripe fractures.
Worked with Dr. David Kring studying the structural results of impact crater formation on target rock at Meteor Crater, AZ, a 50,000 year-old simple crater. First undergraduate allowed access for research. Research presented at 47th LPSC - “Differential vertical and radial displacement along faults in the crater wall during the formation of Meteor Crater, AZ
