My research involves discovering the chemistry in the atmospheres
of foreign worlds, called Exoplanets. Exoplanets that fortuitously pass between their host star and the Earth allow a tiny-tiny fraction of starlight to pass through their upper atmosphere, and we use this to unveil the physics on the diverse multitude of planets in our galaxy.
I am a Machine Learning Scientist at the Space Science Institute (SSI) developing AI solutions for the Hubble, Spitzer, Kepler, TESS, and James Webb Space Telescopes.
I use both ground and space observatories to investigate exoplanet atmospheres.
I also make predictions for the best use of both the NIRISS and NIRCam instruments to capture the primary goals of exoplanet atmospheric research, to constrain the planet formation process in a greater context, to inform astrobiological studies and searches, and to undersand our own existence in that framework.
