Biography:

I'm a fifth year graduate student working on spectral modeling of exoplanets for my dissertation. My recent work has been on developing a transit transmission spectroscopy model that includes refraction and on a new method to measure atmospheric pressure on exoplanets. In my spare time I enjoy playing the piano, reading, and playing with my son.
