As a planetary geologist, investigated Mercury, Venus, Earth, the Moon, Mars, and Europa, with particular focus on the geologic evolution and habitability potential of Mars, including the identification of prime targets for future in situ geologic and astrobiologic investigations. Contributed to the Autonomous Sciencecraft Experiment (ASE), the Life in the Atacama (LITA) project, Sensor-Web activities, and the Mars Odyssey Gamma Ray Spectrometer (GRS) and KAGUYA (SELENE) Gamma Ray Spectrometer (KGRS) efforts.
Educational and Work Experience
Received a B.S and M.S. both at Northern Arizona University, located near the Grand Canyon, United States, and recently a PhD at Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan. I have worked at the Earth-Life Science Institute (ELSI, Tokyo), University of Arizona, and the U.S. Geological Survey, Flagstaff, Arizona, and as a visiting scientist, investigated at the University Museum—the University of Tokyo, Korea Institute of Geology, Mining, and Materials, and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
