About me:

I am a fourth year undergraduate physics major, and my research interests include habitability, exoplanet climate, and the carbon cycle. I enjoy using computational methods (from 3D GCMs to simple box models) to explore what climates on other planets could look like. I am especially interested in tidally locked exoplanets orbiting red dwarfs.
