Research

About me: I am a second-year graduate student at the University of Washington pursuing a dual-title PhD in Astronomy and Astrobiology. I am a member of UW's Virtual Planetary Laboratory and conduct research under the advisement of Prof. Vikki Meadows. Broadly, I work to understand the atmospheres of exoplanets and the properties that make an atmosphere habitable. I am interested in searching for biosignatures, which involves combing through false positive scenarios for one or more gases in an atmosphere. This is achieved through running numerical models to simulate how photochemistry and the climate of a planet affect the atmosphere. A radiative transfer calculation is subsequently applied to these models to begin investigating the detectability of the various molecule species in the atmosphere. The spectra are calculated in high-resolution to prepare for the observations that will be made with the next generation of large ground-based observatories.

Community

I am a (very) amateur graphic designer with no formal training, and I really enjoy designing ways to help communicate science. I currently design posters and flyers for Astronomy on Tap, Seattle and am always looking for new ways to improve my designs in a way to creatively advertise it.

Recently, I joined the NASA Nexus for Exoplanet Science (NExSS) Science Communication Working Group (SCWG) as the lead designer and contributing writer for the monthly NExSS newsletter. I am looking forward to honing my graphic design skills and finding new ways to communicate science!

Links to my designs coming soon!

When I'm not doing or communicating science, I am an active member of The Mountaineers in Seattle, a local mountaineering group focused on outdoor education, stewardship, and adventuring. I am on a long journey to becoming an alpine mountaineer, and my training involves learning and honing skills like rock/ice climbing, alpine scrambling, glacier traversing, orienteering, and wilderness first aid. This page of my website is intended to be a photo log of my outdoor adventures.
