About Me

 I am a Lowell Observatory Prize Postdoctoral Fellow. My current work relates to star-planet interactions, primarily the space-weather environments around stars and how that impacts exo-planetary atmospheres. I am similarly interested in aurorae on brown dwarfs and exoplanets as indicators of the magnetic field strengths and atmospheric properties of those bodies. When I am not working, I can be found watching hockey (go, Yotes and Pens!), practicing one of my many instruments, or camping under the stars.

Research Interests

  • Habitable Zones and K Star Activity across Time (HAZKAT)

    The UV and X-ray evolution of low-mass stars and potential effects on planetary atmospheres.

  • Brown Dwarf Aurorae

    Are radio aurorae related to observed optical/infrared variability?

  • Asteroseismic Targets - Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS)

    New Delta Scuti, Gamma Doradus, and roAp stars discovered in TESS 2-min cadence and FFI.
