About Me

I am a PhD Candidate at UC Santa Cruz working on Planetary Science. I did my undergrad at Caltech in Physics and Geophysics, with a minor in English.

My research interests are, broadly, in the physics of planets and planetary systems. I am interested in planetary interiors and orbital evolution, and tend to work with a combination of analytical methods and numerical models. I work primarily with Professor Francis Nimmo on solid bodies in the solar system. In the past I have worked on questions involving Mercury's core with Professor Dave Stevenson at Caltech and on thermal evolution of asteroids with Professor Ben Weiss at MIT.
