About me

I’m a PhD candidate at Caltech working with Konstantin Batygin to study how systems of exoplanets form and evolve. I’m fascinated by the messy planet formation process that makes orderly systems of small planets. Outside of work, I’m active in Caltech Astronomy Outreach and my hobbies include skiing and jazz piano.

At UChicago, I worked with Daniel Fabrycky to detect and characterize circumbinary planets. You can read my bachelor’s thesis here.
