I am currently a senior geology undergraduate student and plan on continuing to grad school in fall 2010. As of now my intended field of study in graduate school is planetary geology. I have always had a deep-seated interest in space exploration, and have been a student of amateur astronomy and astrophysics. In college I have studied field geology and done research on sedimentary processes. Recent work has included flume experiments on hyperpicnal flow deposits, as well as tsunami modeling.
