Using both novel data analysis techniques and numerical simulations, I strive to understand the formation, evolution, and habitability of planetary systems. In particular, I focus on the most extreme planetary systems that look nothing like our Solar System including the “ultra-short-periods”, the “super-puffs”, planetary systems locked deep in resonance, and planetary systems dynamically tilted to polar orbits around their host stars.
