I am a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in the
Planetary Radar Science Group at the Arecibo Observatory
in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. The warm weather is a welcome change from Toronto, Canada, where I received
in Earth and Space Science from York University's
Planetary Exploration Instrumentation Laboratory within the
Centre for Research in Earth and Space Science .
Using geophysical and remote sensing techniques to see ever deeper into the natural world fascinates me. In my research, I use such techniques, specifically radar, to develop our understanding of the solar system.
My research focuses on the electromagnetic properties of rocks and minerals, radar polarimetry and scattering theory, and how radar relates to other wavelengths, such as infrared, optical, and ultraviolet. Through these studies I investigate the compositions and geomorphology of planetary surfaces as well as processes such as regolith evolution, space weathering, and impact cratering.
