Discovering and Characterizing Exoplanets

My research spans a variety of topics related to the formation, evolution, architectures, and atmospheres of extrasolar planets and is motivated by few basic questions:

My group uses a multipronged approach to answer these questions by carrying out large surveys to discover new planets and measure their statistical properties, performing more targeted individual studies of the atmospheric and orbital properties of known systems, and studying the immediate environments and formation routes of young planets through their circumplanetary accretion disks. More details can be found in the publications listed below and the following review papers: "Imaging Extrasolar Giant Planets", "Occurrence Rates from Direct Imaging Surveys".
