BioHello! I like rocks! More specifically, Martian rocks. I studied Martian meteorites during my undergrad at UCSD, and I wrote my MS thesis on the honeycomb structures in Mars' Hellas basin. I'm also interested in paleontology, volcanology, tectonics, mineralogy, petrology, and natural disasters. I received my MA in education from Stanford, and I currently teach chemistry and marine biology at a high school in Palo Alto. In my spare time, I read books, write stories, design props for a local theater company, practice martial arts, and go on food adventures.
Satellite remote sensing on Earth and/or Mars
(Advanced research paper) Using available data (Google Earth and others), we can study patterns and analyze trends in earthquakes, landslides, water resources, weather, climate, and more! You will learn how to gather and interpret geographical data and write a research paper.
An exploration of paleontology through paleoart
(Beginner project) Are you an artist who love dinosaurs or has an interest in the weirder creatures that evolution created in times long past? Try paleoart! Reconstruct ancient organisms and their interactions using the latest scientific evidence.
