Areas of Interest

My research uses petrology, geochemistry, and more recently geophysics to investigate the origin and evolution of the Moon and large igneous provinces, i.e., “supervolcanoes.” In recent years I have become more active in human space exploration, primarily on the Moon, but with the goal of getting humans further out into the Solar System. Current research areas include:

  • Human exploration of the Moon
  • Origin and Evolution of the Moon
  • Lunar Basalt Petrogenesis through Crystal Stratigraphy
  • Formation of Impact Melts
  • Geophysical Instrumentation and Investigations of the Moon
  • Origin and Evolution of Large Igneous Provinces
  • Evaluation of lunar resources and utilization
