Welcome! I am a geochemist who studies a range of topics in organic geochemistry, astrobiology, and planetary science. I obtained a Ph.D. in Geological Sciences from Arizona State University, and I am presently working with Barbara Sherwood Lollar at the University of Toronto. I conduct field, laboratory, and theoretical studies to understand natural chemical processes. My research interests include organic chemistry in water-rock systems, the emergence of life, and the formation and evolution of moons in the outer Solar System.
