Research

About me: I am a third-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 how we can use the upcoming extremely large telescopes to search for signs of habitability and life on terrestrial-sized exoplanets orbiting nearby M-dwarf stars. I use high-resolution spectroscopy and cross-correlation analysis to find signals of molecular species in atmospheres.

Community

I am a (very) amateur graphic designer with no formal training, and I really enjoy designing ways to 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.
