    My background is in Computer Science, Planetary Science, and Geology. I am most interested in problems that lie at the interfaces between these fields, such as automated methods (artificial intelligence, machine learning) to investigate science questions using planetary data (orbital and in situ).

    I work at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. I have two roles at JPL:

    I have also taught classes in Computer Science at Cal State L.A. and Oregon State University.

    My research projects at JPL have included:
