Our solar system is teeming with diverse and fascinating worlds, from the innermost terrestrial planets, to the gas giants and their icy moons beyond the frost line, to the dynamic denizens of the Kuiper Belt.

I am an assistant professor of astrophysical and planetary sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder. My research focuses on the thermal behavior of terrestrial planets and moons, especially icy worlds. Data from spacecraft and Earth-based observatories enable my group to investigate planetary atmospheres and surfaces. We develop physics-based models and perform quantitative analysis to interpret remote sensing data.

Here, you will find brief summaries of some of my group’s ongoing research, along with tools and sporadic blog entries about how we pursue these projects.
