Welcome to my website! I am a first-year graduate student in astronomy at the California Institute of Technology, where I am supported by a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I am interested in the diversity of exoplanets and understanding where our Solar System fits in the context of these other worlds.
At Caltech I work with Andrew Howard on radial velocity detection and characterization of exoplanets in order to understand the demographics of planets in our galaxy.
As an undergraduate at the University of Rochester, I worked with Segev BenZvi on a number of projects in gamma-ray astroparticle physics, and on machine learning classification of galaxy spectra to identify supernovae.

Using machine learning to classify galaxy spectra as containing a type Ia supernova or not.
Observations of variable stars in the globular cluster M15 to measure its distance.
I derive the equations describing gravitational waves and apply them to a binary black hole system.
