Solar system and exoplanet habitability. Currently about two-thirds Early Mars and one-thirds exoplanets. We are more modeling-heavy than most groups (all types of models from box models to GCMs), but we also do a lot of data work (including Mars rover operations). We are also investigating artificial dust (half-wavelength metal dipoles) for Mars terraforming.
