I'm a postdoctoral astronomer working with Professor Michael Meyer's research group in the astronomy department at the University of Michigan. I'm primarily interested in characterizing exoplanets, especially their atmospheres, and broader questions in astrobiology. My PhD projects at Yale University explored the theoretical modeling of exoplanet atmospheres, using anything from simple radiative models to sophisticated global climate models.
Beyond astronomy I really enjoy playing, composing, and improvising for the piano. I also enjoy swimming and solving twisty puzzles, the most common of which is the Rubik's Cube, and I'm an active member of the World Cube Association.
