Research Expertise: planetary astronomy
VPL Focus: Task A: Earth as an Exoplanet, Task B: Earth through Time
I am a fifth year graduate student working towards a dual title PhD in astronomy and astrobiology under the supervision of Victoria Meadows and Shawn Domagal-Goldman. 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 coupled photochemical-climate model, and our radiative transfer model.
