I'm a graduate student at the University of Maryland, College Park.

I've just started my first year in the Astronomy Department at UMD. I spent my undergraduate years in foggy Berkeley, California, where I earned degrees in Physics and Astrophysics. How unique is the Earth? Are we alone in the Universe? Stay tuned!

Research

Transit survey follow-up

By searching and accounting for unresolved stellar companions near Kepler targets in Prof. Courtney Dressing's group, I've made updates to exoplanet occurrence rates.

Image-reduction pipeline

With Dr. Lea Hirsch, I've worked to extend an image-reduction pipeline and make it open-source.

Exoplanet atmospheres at high resolution

I'm working on post-processing global climate models with high-resolution radiative transfer codes in extreme regions of parameter space with Prof. Eliza Kempton.
