About

I am a fourth-year NSF Graduate Research Fellow (PhD Advisor: Dr. Jonathan P. Williams) studying the “Organosulfur Chemistry in the Birthplaces of Planets.” Right now, I am physically based at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian working in the Öberg Astrochemistry Lab to characterize the formation pathways of complex sulfur organics through ultra-high vacuum chamber experiments. I am also part of the eDisk ALMA Large Program to understand the structure, dynamics, and chemistry of embedded disks (the earliest stages of stellar and planet formation). I also write for Astrobites and spearheaded the creation of our climate change committee, starting with my recent article “ The ‘Pale Blue Dot’ Blues,” where I illustrate how astrophysics and planetary science are being used to further our understanding of Earth. Check out the Earth Week x Astrobites 2022 and 2023 for more! I am passionate about linking my affinity for engineering, chemistry, and astrophysics to better understand how the planet we call home came to be.
