Hello, and welcome to my website! Here you will find a collection of my professional interests and celebrations.
I am a first year PhD student in Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of California, Riverside. I work on exoplanet habitability and biosignatures using atmospheric models to better understand planetary conditions and potential detectability. In Spring 2020 I graduated from the University of Washington in Earth and Space Sciences with Interdisciplinary and College Honors. During my time as an undergraduate I also worked on exoplanet research and am excited to be continuing my work in graduate school. I'm also highly interested in DEI and outreach work.
