51 Pegasi b Postdoctoral Scholar Research Associate in Astronomy
I am interested in pushing new technologies for studying how planets form and evolve. Using the latest advances in high contrast imaging, high resolution spectroscopy, and long-baseline optical interferometry, I study the dynamical history and composition of Jovian-like exoplanets beyond the water ice-line to understand how they form and how they influence their planetary systems. To make these complex techniques broadly accessible, I also lead the development of several open-source software packages in these areas. In the future, I hope to apply these techniques to image an Earth-like planet around another star.
