My research focuses
on understanding how planets form, particularly by
characterizing the "footprints" that nascent planets leave behind in
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
Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at CfA. I received my
Ph.D. from the University of Michigan
and my B.A. from Columbia University.
