Research Interests

I study the detection, validation, and characterization of exoplanets via the transit and radial velocity methods. I'm interested in developing a better understanding of the exoplanet population, investigating the nature of exoplanet habitability, and finding and characterizing an Earth twin.

Personal Interests

Traveling, rock climbing, books, movies, and space!


I'm a 1st year graduate student studying exoplanets at UC Berkeley. I completed my bachelor's degree at Harvard College in 2017 followed by a one year Fulbright Fellowship at the University of Copenhagen and the Danish Technical University.
