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.

Sturzstroms on Saturn's Moon Iapetus

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.
