As a graduate student in astrophysics at MIT, I worked with Rob Simcoe, Josh Winn, and George Ricker.

There, I pursued the development of new instrumentation for astronomy, particularly for exoplanet detection. I worked on the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), the NASA Explorer-class mission recently awarded to MIT, as well as inexpensive InGaAs detectors for infrared photometry.

My work has also included the study of the inter-galactic and circum-galactic medium using FIRE, an infrared spectrograph, and other instruments at the Magellan Observatory in Chile.
