My research focuses on understanding how planets form, particularly by characterizing the "footprints" that nascent planets leave behind in protoplanetary disks surrounding young stars.

I joined the faculty at BU in 2013. Before that, I was a NASA Sagan Fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA). I also previously served as an NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at CfA. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan and my B.A. from Columbia University.
