Hello and welcome!

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Jackson School of Geosciences at The University of Texas at Austin. Broadly, my scientific interests center on the role of surface processes in controlling the evolution of planetary landscapes. My research focuses on the use of remote sensing data to study the signature of surface processes recorded in the topography, mineralogy, and sedimentary rock record of Mars, Earth, and other planetary bodies.

In addition to research, I have a longstanding interest in public outreach, and always enjoy the opportunity to talk to people about planetary science. Apart from science, my hobbies range from hockey (playing and avid Leafs fan), to Lord of the Rings, to surfing, to enjoying Austin’s BBQ, beer, music + sunshine.


Opportunities for Students/Postdocs:

In January 2019 I will be starting as an assistant professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at UT Austin. I am actively recruiting graduate students and a postdoctoral fellow to build a research group with diverse perspectives and backgrounds working on problems related to planetary surface processes. Graduate student applications will be considered for Fall of 2019, while the start date of the postdoctoral fellow could be as early as January 2019.

The area of focus for graduate student projects is open within the broad field of planetary surface processes, and will be selected based on research topics of mutual interest. Prospective graduate students can find out more information in the advertisement posted here. The deadline for applications is Jan. 1, 2019 (Dec. 1, 2018 for fellowship consideration).

The two year postdoctoral fellow position will involve research on the incision of paleolake outlet canyons on Mars. The position will also allow for development of new research projects that align with overlapping areas of scientific interests. Prospective applicants can find out more information on this position in the advertisement posted here. The deadline for applications is Nov. 15, 2018.

I am strongly committed to building an inclusive and supportive research group. Applicants from historically underrepresented groups in STEM fields, with non-traditional backgrounds, and/or with a demonstrated interest in efforts to improve inclusion and diversity in STEM are especially encouraged to apply. Group members will be housed in the E. P. Schoch building, which has a power assisted door for accessibility.

Any prospective students and postdoctoral fellows with questions about joining my research group are encouraged to get in touch with me at tgoudge <at> jsg.utexas.edu!
