My research centers around noble gas geochemistry and its applications to a range of Earth science problems. I am also interested in the exploration of Mars and its geochemistry, geology, and geomorphology; much of my current work is centered on Martian geochronology and surface exposure dating using in-situ noble-gas based techniques.

Below I describe my laboratory facilities and several of the projects we are currently pursuing.
