Biography:
I am a third-year graduate student pursuing a dual-title PhD in astronomy and astrobiology. I work as a research assistant for my advisor Victoria Meadows as part of the NASA Astrobiology Institute's Virtual Planetary Laboratory (VPL). My research involves spectral models of terrestrial planets and retrieval of planetary properties (e.g. temperature, surface type) from disk-integrated spectra.
