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.
