Time for Titan

Abstract painting randomly found that reminded me of Titan. Image: Alejandro Soto. Painting: Unknown.

After a great half year in Colorado working with Dr. Jeffrey Andrews-Hanna I have returned to Pasadena, California to again collaborate with Dr. Tapio Schneider. Dr. Schneider and I will be investigating the methane cycle on current Titan with an emphasis on understanding the large scale processes that influence precipitation, both seasonally and secularly. Although I am still working on various Mars projects, I am excited to tackle a different terrestrial planet, particularly a slowly rotating planet with a thick atmosphere. There will be some interesting new physics to learn.
