I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island. Funded by NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute, I work within the Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences. My research mainly focuses on computer modeling of impact cratering.
Impact cratering is a fundamental geological process which is ubiquitous throughout the Solar System. Impact cratering has been linked to the formation of the Moon, the extinction of life on Earth, and the possible transfer of life between planetary bodies. It is, therefore, an important process to understand. I am particularly interested in the formation and structure of large craters, better known as basins, on the Moon.
