Hello there! Welcome to the Gaia Lab.
Our primary research focus is on understanding the driving forces behind the formation, evolution, and decay of Solar System surfaces. In particular, we investigate the coupled interactions between climate, erosion, and tectonics recorded in landscapes at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. Find out more below!
What we do, and why
Have you ever looked at a landscape and thought, “Wow, that looks cool. How did that happen“? Then welcome to the club (if not, that’s okay). From your backyard to faraway moons, river systems dictate how surfaces evolve over geological time.

Here’s a Twitter and Blog sneak peak:
After years of being a (self-proclaimed) planetary scientist, the stars finally aligned and I was able to attend my very first LPSC this year. Overall rating: 9/10. Pros: no commuting (like at all), warm weather (was it though?), the looming presence of the Goose’s Acre (and their margaritas), the Marriott pool and hot tub (thank…Keep reading
Excited about the great outdoors?
So are we too! We travel all over the globe to find interesting and unique places to answer questions about how and why landscapes look the way they do. See where we’ve been around the world:
