Fieldwork at Meteor Crater, Arizona
I am a Planetary Scientist at the University of Arizona and Targeting Specialist for the HiRISE camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. After gaining an MSci degree in Planetary Science from University College London in 2004, I went on to Imperial College London to study for my Doctorate in Impact Cratering on the icy satellites of Jupiter (also including a 10 month stint mapping fractures on Saturn's moon Enceladus). I joined the Lunar and Planetary Lab as a post doc and now remain at the UofA as an associate staff scientist working with the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LROC), High Resolution Imaging Experiment (HiRISE), Cassini ISS and New Horizons science teams. Outside of research I am an adjunct lecturer of astrobiology and take photos of Mars as a targeting specialist for the HiRISE.
