I am a planetary geophysicist who focuses on impact craters and what they can tell us about the bodies that formed those craters and what the craters tell us about the planetary surfaces on which they have formed.
I am also interested in astronomy education, especially correcting misconceptions and really bad astronomy. While I am employed by a private, non-profit company and planetary science is my “day job,” I am in no way connected with NASA, and this blog and my writings and statements conveyed under “Exposing PseudoAstronomy” are completely separate from my employment and do not reflect the opinions of my employer. I do this on my own time, in my capacity as a private citizen, though my background and my employment may offer me unique perspectives that I would not otherwise have.
