About me

Industry Science
Occupation Planetary Scientist
Location Huntsville, Alabama, United States
Introduction I'm a research scientist working on rocks from the Moon, Earth, Mars, and asteroids. I'm a geologist by training, so I use my geological eye on mystery rocks to try to understand their home planets without going there. But I would love to go there! I have to make do by being on the Athena science team for the Mars Exploration Rovers and seeing Mars through the rovers' eyes - and planning for robotic exploration of the Moon.
Interests rocks, planets, pottery, flowers, hiking, traveling, modern art & architecture, informal science education, sociology of science, chick lit
