Targets of Interest: Earth, Mars, Titan

I am a geomorphologist interested in how planetary surfaces change with time. Most of my research centers on the history of water on Mars. The Mars that we observe today is cold and dry, but its surface contains features such as alluvial fans, river valleys, and deltas that look conspicuously similar to landforms that we are familar with on Earth. I use a combination of remote sensing analysis, numerical modeling, and field work at relevant terrestrial analogue sites to develop mechanistic understandings for how these features formed.
