I earned a Ph.D. in planetary geophysics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2013 under the direction of Professors Maria Zuber and Bradford Hager. My dissertation used gravity and topography data for Venus, Mercury and the Moon to study the structure and evolution of those bodies. I was a post-doctoral research scientist with the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University for three years, and in 2016 I was awarded the Urey Fellowship at the Lunar & Planetary Institute in Houston, TX. In Fall 2017 I will be joining the faculty of the Department of Geosciences at Baylor University in Waco, TX.
