Research Interests

I am interested in the processes that drive the evolution and behaviour of planetary bodies of all kinds and what gives rise to all the diversity we see across our solar system and beyond. My research primarily involves geophysical modelling, with constraints coming in large part from spacecraft-based observations, especially relating to gravitational and magnetic fields. I work on problems related to magnetism, gravity, topography, elasticity/flexure/fracturing, heat production/transfer, and fluid dynamics. Some of my main research areas include: the interiors of icy moons, the magnetic histories of bodies like the Moon and Mars, and space weathering.
