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.

As a geomorphologist, my research uses theories of sediment transport and fluid flow, alongside field and remotely sensed observations, and numerical models, to evaluate the dynamics of modern deposition systems, such as river deltas, and the associated development of sedimentary records.

Graduate Students

Mariel D Nelson , Ph.D., expected 2025 (Co-supervisor)
Hi! I'm a geomorphologist and second year PhD student in the Department of Geological Sciences. I'm co-advised by David Mohrig (sedimentology) and Tim Goudge (remote sensing). I study the shape of landscapes and seek process-based descriptions of how they change over time. For my graduate research, I conduct repeat lidar surveys of river banks using uncrewed aerial vehicles to understand when...

Michelle Tebolt , Ph.D., expected 2024 (Supervisor)
As a planetary scientist, I study sedimentary processes on Mars to better understand the paleoenvironment, or the conditions that once existed on the surface. I am particularly interested in Martian fluvial processes that occurred ~3.8 billion years ago when there was liquid water on the surface and consider the question: How has water influenced the surface of Mars? Or more...

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 evolution of impact crater lakes on Mars, Earth, and elsewhere with satellite observations, landscape modelling, and fieldwork. Specifically, I'm interested in how drainages cross crater rims, so I'm researching inlet formation, controls, and timescales. Publications from my PhD have so far focused...
