Current Research Projects



I am the Principal Investigator of the Diviner Lunar Radiometer Experiment, which is one of six instruments on NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). Diviner has been mapping the Moon continuously since July of 2009, providing the most detailed and comprehensive measurements of the thermal emission of any solar system body. Diviner's measurements are revolutionizing our understanding of the thermal stability of lunar volatiles, the physical properties of the Moon's regolith, and the Moon's geological history.


I am Deputy Principal Investigator of the RIMFAX Ground Penetrating Radar Experiment on NASA's Mars 2020 Rover Mission. RIMFAX is currently probing the subsurface of Mars to depths of 20 meters below the surface as the rover drives, providing geological and environmental context for the rovers in-situ science investigations and cached samples. Svein-Erik Hamran of the University of Oslo is the RIMFAX Principal Investigator.
