Research Description

I am a 3rd year Planetary Science PhD student working with Dr. Kerri Cahoy. I am currently studying methods to use exoplanet phase and color to support orbit deconfusion in direct images of multi-planet systems. I'm broadly interested in searching for and studying habitable planets. I also work on searching for Solar System small bodies in observational survey data. Before joining STAR Lab, I earned my Bachelor's in Physics from Southeast Missouri State University, where I worked with a three dimensional general circulation model to examine the habitability of a simulated terrestrial planet.
