I am a fourth year graduate student working towards a dual title PhD in astronomy and astrobiology under the supervision of Victoria Meadows. I am interested in the future of exoplanet characterization with TPF-style technology. Hazy atmospheres are likely to be common in the exoplanet population, and I study Venus, Titan, and early Earth (the 'Pale Orange Dot!') as solar system analog worlds for hazy exoplanets using a combination of radiative transfer and photochemical modeling tools.
