Starting in January of 2021, I will be an assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Michigan State University.
I am currently working as an SAO Astronomer at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard-Smithsonian. My research focuses on understanding how planets form and evolve by studying circumstellar disks and exoplanets. I received my PhD in Physics from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Vanderbilt University in 2016. In 2010, I completed my Bachelors of Science in Astrophysics and Psychology at Rutgers University and I received my Master of Science in Applied and Engineering Physics from George Mason University in 2012.
I also have an amazing dog named "Jules" (after the character from the TV show Psych). She likes boxes...
