Research Interests

I am a first year PhD student currently working in the Cool Worlds Lab with David Kipping on the oblateness of exoplanets. My general research interests lie in statistical methods and detectability in observational astronomy.

I recently graduated from Northeastern University with a B.S in Physics and Philosophy. My previous work in astronomy includes imaging simulated observations of black holes with the next-generation Event Horizon Telescope project, as well as testing a statistical inference emission model for protoplanetary disks.

Outside of research, I am passionate about all things music performance and composition, home cooking, and photography.

Feel free to reach out if we have any overlapping interests!
