Research Interests

Many rocky exoplanets may not experience Earth-like plate tectonics. I model how these planets build up topography through various other mechanisms. I am interested in the relationship between topographic propensity (as a function of observable planetary bulk properties) and the distribution of land and oceans on the surface.
