I am a research astrophysicist working at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in the Exoplanets and Stellar Astrophysics Laboratory.  My research focuses on the confirmation and characterization of exoplanets discovered by NASA's Kepler and K2 missions in preparation for other upcoming NASA missions like TESS and JWST.  I specifically am interested in the atmospheric characterization of exoplanets via transmission or eclipse spectro-photometry.  I am also a science team member on the KELT ground-based transit survey and the TECH project.
