About me

I am a planetary scientist studying the internal structure and surface processes of bodies in our solar system. My work involves combining present-day observations from NASA missions (mainly gravity, topography and radar data) and geophysical models. I am currently a postdoc at Purdue University in the department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences (EAPS).

I am passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion within the planetary science community. I believe that increasing the diversity or race, gender and socio-economic backgrounds within the community is essential for increasing the diversity of scientific ideas that advance the field.
