My research focuses on studying and understanding the hydrologic cycle of Titan, a moon of Saturn, and the only other known body in our solar system with an active hydrologic cycle. To this end, my research. working with Alex Hayes, focuses on studying the frequency, duration, location, and characteristics of storms on Titan. We do this through a combination of ground and space based observations (using the Cassini spacecraft currently in orbit around Saturn) to image Titan in the near-IR, where we can see through Titan's thick atmosphere.
