My research interests concern understanding the impact history of the Earth-Moon system and how these impact events may have affected the surface of the Earth over time. It is exciting to analyze microscopic impact samples from the Moon, which we use as proxies for understanding impacts on Earth, and realize they tell us about large-scale surface-altering events that occurred hundreds of millions of years ago!
Albion is a great little college with a lot of personality! I like teaching here because it allows me to interact with students and get to know them as real people, not just a face in a seat. Helping my students gain a greater appreciation for science is the most rewarding part of my job.
