I am a computational astrophysicist studying the origin of Earth’s Moon. I perform 3D numerical simulations of planetary scale giant impacts. My research investigates the dynamical role of magnetic fields in the Moon-forming giant impact and in the early evolution of the protolunar disk. To learn more about my work, visit my Research page.
