Research Interests

My research focuses on the detection and characterization of extrasolar planets and planet-forming environments. I am involved in projects ranging from hydrodynamical and atmospheric modeling (see picture below) to studies of orbital dynamics and evolution, to observational searches for planets using Doppler radial velocity and photometric transit techniques.
