Welcome
About Me:
I am a postdoctoral fellow at University of British Columbia working with Prof. Catherine Johnson. I am currently working on understanding how we can use the statistical measure of topography, surface roughness, to understand planetary bodies in the solar system. I will also be working to support the OSIRIS-Rex Laser Altimeter (OLA) in investigating the asteroid Bennu, where we will mapping the topography of Bennu at a horizontal resolution of 7 cm!
Research Interests:
My research interests include the role impact cratering and other geological processes have on the surface evolution of planetary bodies in the solar system. I investigate this through the use of direct observations of planetary surfaces (images and topography), measurements of surface roughness, and by modeling different geological processes. I am interested in understanding how we can use topography to understand the mechanical properties of terrestrial planets and small bodies.
