I am currently working on exoplanetary science with Dave Charbonneau in the Solar, Stellar, and Planetary Science Division. I focus on the UV and X-ray emissions of nearby M dwarfs. With this research, I want to determine the effect high energy emissions from the host star have on the atmospheres of terrestrial worlds and, ultimately, its ability to support life. When I am not doing research, I like to listen to music, go for a jog, or play video games.
