My current research focuses on the geologic and climate history of early Mars 3.8 billion years ago. Early Mars possessed the most likely conditions for hydrological activity on the surface (and, by extension, for life), but it’s also the time period we know the least about.
       
     
 In my work on martian geomorphology, I focus on two geologic processes we believe were operating on early Mars - volcanism and glaciation. The interaction between these two large-scale processes may have formed some of the unusual Martian morphologic features that remain unexplained today.
       
     
 My current work focuses on the evolution of the fretted terrain along the dichotomy boundary through a quantitative geomorphologic approach to determine when and how material was removed to create the distinctive morphology observed today. Relevant abstracts can be found  here  and  here .
