Research Themes: Star Formation and Exoplanets

Research Keywords: Instruments, Observations, Planets, Theory


My main focus is open source tool development for problems across the fields in astronomy studying the mulitple epochs of exoplanetary systems: protoplanetary disks, debris disks, exoplanets, and post-main sequence systems. The broader aim is using these tools to promote collaboration within and across those fields.
