I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Formation and Evolution of Exoplanets group. I recently finished my PhD (August 2016) in the Physics and Astronomy Department at Johns Hopkins University. Not too long ago I studied Mechanical Engineering and Physics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I am primarily interested in using high resolution methods to studying star and planet formation  by searching close-in to nearby stars. I am a member of the Gemini Planet Imager Instrument and Survey team. I am also part of the James Webb Space Telescope Near InfraRed Imager and Slitless Spectrograph working group for its Aperture Masking Interferometry mode. As launch approaches I am playing a role in defining some early observations. You can read more about my research interests here.

On my other personal website I sometimes blog about what I’m up to, research or otherwise.
