I am a seventh year graduate student at Wash U. studying under Professor Bill McKinnon. I research the geology and geophysics of the icy moons of Jupiter and Saturn. I expect to complete my PhD in Spring 2013.
My work has looked at a variety of geologic features on several moons. I then relate these surface features to theories about the interior dynamics, surface material properties, thermal history, or lithospheric stress state of these moons. See more here.

Long-runout landslides (sturzstroms) are found across the Solar System. They have been observed primarily on Earth and Mars, but also on Venus, and Jupiter’s moons Io and Callisto. I have just published a paper about sturzstroms on Iapetus.
