I’m currently a Master’s Student at University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
I’m working on becoming a Planetary Geologist.
My main interest in terms of planetary geology is using the remote sensing information to gain new insights of a planet in question.  Remote sensing information such as mineralogical and petrologic information as well as analyzing different images using the EM bands.
I like learning new information about the new surficial features found on different planets and trying to figure out how these features came to be.  I’m currently in the process of investigating Ausonia Mensa, a location on Mars, near the Hellas Basin Region for my research project during my stay at UMass-Amherst.
I belong to AGU (American Geophysical Union) and receive publications regarding to planetary sciences.  I also get publications from Physics Today
I am currently working on a project with Dr. Michele Cooke in the Geosciences Department at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst on Faults in the Fields 2008 of the San Andreas Fault System in Southern California.  To find out more information about this project, please click on the link: FIF2008
I was recently awarded a NASA Student Intern Program to work at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland this summer for 10 weeks starting on June 2nd.  I will be a research assistant working 40+ hours and will receive a $4,000 stipend while living on campus at University of Maryland-Baltimore County.
