Hello, I'm Sarah. (she/her).

I study planets in the Solar System and planets around other stars, called exoplanets. Through lab experiments & computer models, I specifically investigate the potential clouds and hazes on other planets. I want to figure out how these aerosols affect the overall atmosphere, change our observations of distant worlds, and impact habitability.

I'm particularly interested in the Ice Giants of the Solar System and in super-Earths and mini-Neptunes, which have no Solar System analogue.
