Tim is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at UT Austin. He received his BSc from Queen's University, and his ScM and PhD from Brown University.

Broadly, Tim's scientific interests center on the role of surface processes in controlling the evolution of planetary landscapes. His research focuses on the use of remote sensing data (e.g., images, topography, imaging spectroscopy) to study the signature of surface processes recorded in the topography, mineralogy, and sedimentary rock record of Mars, Earth, and other planetary bodies.

Areas of Expertise

Remote sensing; surface processes; geomorphology; sedimentology; reflectance spectroscopy; martian surface geology; planetary science.


Gaia Stucky de Quay
I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Jackson School of Geosciences (University of Texas at Austin). My primary research focus is on understanding the driving forces behind the formation, evolution, and decay of planetary bodies. In particular, I investigate the coupled interactions between climate, erosion, and tectonics recorded in landscapes at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. I am...

Graduate Students

Mariel Nelson , Ph.D., expected 2025 (Co-supervisor)
I am a geomorphologist and first-year PhD student in the Department of Geological Sciences. I am co-advised by Dr. David Mohrig (quantitative sedimentology and morphodynamics) and Dr. Tim Goudge (planetary surface processes and remote sensing lab). I study the shape of landscapes and seek mechanistic descriptions of how they change over time. For my graduate research, I'm using time-lapse high resolution...

Michelle Tebolt , Ph.D., expected 2024 (Supervisor)

Sophie A Goliber , Ph.D., expected 2022 (Committee Member)
Sophie Goliber has been a Geological Sciences PhD student at UTIG since August 2017. She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Buffalo where she got into remote sensing and glaciology research. Her fascination with the cryosphere drew her to UTIG and working with Ginny Catania who shared her interests in using remote sensing methods and optical remote sensing...

Nicole K Guinn , M.S., expected 2020 (Committee Member)
I am interested in volcanic remote sensing and volcanic monitoring. I use ArcGIS analysis and photogrammetry techniques to qualitatively and quantitatively describe the behavior of the pyroclastic flow from the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption. I aim to provide a way to characterize eruptions using aerial photography due to the hazardous nature of field work on active volcanoes.

Emily Bamber (Supervisor)
I am a PhD student in the Planetary Surface Processes lab [link:http://www.jsg.utexas.edu/goudge/][/link] My current research addresses the past hydrological evolution of impact crater lakes on Earth, Mars and elsewhere with fieldwork, satellite observations and modelling.
