Assistant Professor of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences


I was born and raised throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania. I earned my B.S.E. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2006 and subsequently a M.S. in Geobiology and PhD in Planetary Geophysics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2013. In addition to his research, I have a strong commitment to public service and legislative advocacy, as illustrated through my previously held leadership roles in student government and nonprofit organizations, including as the President and CEO of the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students (NAGPS). Through these roles, I have gained significant experience in non-profit management as well as legislative policy and advocacy at the state and federal levels.
