about me

I am a computational astrophysicist, currently appointed as a Flatiron Fellow at the Center for Computational Astrophysics. I am also a Research Associate at the American Museum of Natural History, where I was previously an NHFP Sagan Postdoctoral Fellow.

My science is aimed at finding out what the most important dynamic drivers of planet formation are -- ultimately, so that we can use our understanding of star and planet formation physics to make predictions about planet populations in the Galaxy.

I am interested in the many ways people talk about and conceive of science, especially in informal settings and with some liberal blurring of disciplinary boundaries. My science communication work is primarily within museums, including work done with institutions like the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History and the Adler Planetarium.
