Research Themes: Star Formation and Exoplanets

Research Keywords: Instruments, Observations, Planets, Theory


I have three foci:

- Protoplanetary disks: developing and implementing open source approaches to increase the amount of information extracted from various detection techniques (especially interferometric detection of dust continuum emission). I also really like to (try to) connect research across adjacent fields (exoplanets, debris disks, protoplanetary disks).

- Radio and optical interferometry: developing and implementing open source statistical methods for image reconstruction

- Equal representation and treatment in astronomy: assessing how implicit and explicit biases affect people in (and attempting to enter) astronomy
