M.S. Chemistry, Saint Louis University, 2007

My research interests revolve around Mars and understanding the red planet in order to pave the way for future missions to Mars. I am currently working with Carl Agee in the high pressure lab looking at planetary differentiation and with Penny King undertaking extended calibration in the APXS that will be on the 2009 Mars Science Lab.
