Ph.D., Geological Sciences, The University of Texas at Austin, expected 2024
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 specifically: Where were the past liquid water reservoirs on Mars and how long did they persist?
