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. 
       
     
 The tiger stripes, partially shown in this image from Cassini, have been consistently erupting water and ice particles since they were first imaged in 2006. Their formation and the mechanisms for eruption remain largely mysterious.
