Research Interests

I study physical processes on the surfaces of the Earth, the Moon, Mars, and asteroids, mostly processes that involve water ice. Most of my time is spent on model computations, but I also carry out theoretical studies, data analysis, and field work. Among my research interests are the ice ages of Mars, water ice in the polar regions of the Moon, and the cryosphere of Hawaii.
