Scientific Research Associate
I am an Assistant Research Scientist at IPAC/Caltech where I study the direct imaging of extrasolar planets. My research focuses on understanding giant exoplanet formation around stars with debris disks through high contrast imaging. I am from Northern California, I went to UCLA for my undergrad, Leiden University for my masters and PhD and back to JPL as an Exoplanetary Science Initiatve Postdoctoral Fellow. I started at IPAC in 2017, I am the data management lead for the Roman Coronagraph Instrument.
