I have conducted research on the volcanology of Jupiter's moon, Io, elevated convection in wintertime thunderstorms (i.e., thundersnow), geologic processes of Neptune's moon, Triton, and other topics.

    (See my research topics here)
     (See my publications here.)

As the Graduate TA Coordinator for two years at NIU, I organized the weekly topics our teaching assistants
instructed for the introductory physical
geology labs.
