About Me

I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Michigan State University, primarily working on NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission. 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...
