About

I'm a planetary scientist and director of the Planetary Habitability Laboratory (PHL) at the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo. The PHL is a research and educational virtual laboratory dedicated to studies of the habitability of Earth, the Solar System, and extrasolar planets. Our main approach is to use the evolution of terrestrial habitability, from paleoclimates to climate change, as a baseline for comparisons.
