Biography:

I'm an astronomy grad working on models of the dynamics of exoplanets in multi-planet systems, particularly those with high eccentricity and high mutual-inclination, in order to understand how planet-planet interactions may affect habitability. My goals are to develop fast computational methods of determining the important interactions between planets and to link these to simple energy balance models for climate. I love the ocean, clouds, algebra, books, sleeping in, and cats.
