My research focuses on early lunar geophysics and geology. In particular, I am interested in how the long wavelength structure of the lunar crust and lithosphere developed, as well as the structure of large lunar impact basins. I also measure the magnetization of lunar samples to determine if the Moon once possessed a long-lived magnetic field, which would be consistent with an ancient core dynamo. I am interested in applying the lessons learned from the Moon to other airless bodies such as asteroids and Mercury.
