I am a JSMF postdoctoral fellow in MIT’s Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences.

I did my undergraduate work at Harvard, where I studied Physics and Philosophy. I received my PhD from UChicago’s Department of Geophysical Sciences, where I worked on the atmospheres of extrasolar planets and past climates of Earth.

Find out more about my research, or check out my recent publications.


I’ve recently developed PyRADS, a line-by-line radiation code appropriate for research in planetary atmospheres and for teaching radiative transfer, which runs (almost) entirely in Python! To download the code, go to my github.
