Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Astronomy at The University of Texas at Austin. I am interested in how planets form and evolve over time, which I address by finding exoplanets and characterizing their physical, orbital, and atmospheric properties at the individual and population levels. My research group focuses on questions related to the statistical patterns, orbital evolution, architectures, and circumplanetary (moon-forming) disks of exoplanets and brown dwarfs from an observational perspective. We use a broad range of ground- and space-based telescopes spanning the optical, infrared, and sub-mm wavelengths with an emphasis on high-contrast adaptive optics imaging, near-infrared spectroscopy, and precision radial velocities.

Are you a prospective graduate student or postdoc interested in joining my group? Feel free to reach out over email! I'm always happy to chat about opportunities.
