Hello, you've found my academic website! This website is now archived.

I'm no longer actively working in planetary science research. Currently, I work as a data scientist in the Province of British Columbia Ministry of Health's Public Health Surveillance and Epidemiology team, in the Office of the Provincial Health Officer.

From 2017-2020, I was a Plaskett Postdoctoral fellow at the National Research Council of Canada's Herzberg Astronomy and Astrophysics Research Center in Victoria, BC. I am interested in direct imaging of exoplanets and giant exoplanet formation and migration. I led an imaging search for giant planets around small M-stars with the vector vortex coronagraph at Keck Observatory on Maunakea.

Prior to that, I graduated with a PhD in Planetary Science from the California Institute of Technology in 2017. With my advisor, Heather Knutson, I led the imaging effort of the "Friends of hot Jupiters" campaign to search for stellar companions to hot Jupiters systems.
