I have worked at the forefront of planetary science research since 2007. My main area of expertise is the geochemical remote sensing of terrestrial bodies. In much of my research I use the technique of planetary X-ray fluorescence to map the surface chemical composition of the Moon and Mercury. I have more than 20 peer-reviewed publications in press, and have had substantial media coverage for several pieces of my research. During this time, I have also been involved with several STEM outreach activities.
