Planetary Astronomer

UC Riverside


Hello, and welcome to my web page! I am currently an Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow of the National Science Foundation. I am based at the University of California Riverside in Stephen Kane’s group in the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences. I am also an Instructor or Computer Information Systems at the Riverside City College, having most recently taught CIS 830-832: Introduction to Python Programming.

In July 2018, I defended my PhD in the Department of Astronomy at Boston University. My primary research interests are long-period exoplanet characterization and detection, observational astronomy, and planetary science. Please see my Research page for more information about my current and past projects.

Before graduate school, I worked as a researcher in the Planetary Science Section of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. Before that, I attended the University of California at Berkeley, where I received my B. A. in Astrophysics in the Spring of 2012.
