My research interest lies in unveiling the transitions between solid and gas phase materials in unique environments, from the ISM to exoplanet atmospheres. To do this, I utilize high resolution X-ray spectroscopy and imaging to measure dust grain size and mineralogical compositions in interstellar space. I am now working to extend exoplanet transmission models and observations to shorter wavelengths, which could help us build a complete view of atmospheric conditions, from cloud formation to evaporation. My passions for astronomical software and modeling techniques have also fueled a variety of research projects in high resolution spectroscopy, such as studying the accretion state of our Galaxy’s resident supermassive black hole.
