About

I am a stellar astrophysicist working in the High Energy Division at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. My research focuses on stellar magnetic activity and its impacts on exoplanets. I use magnetohydrodynamic simulations to study problems like rotation evolution of young, active stars, exoplanetary environments and their habitability, and the orbital evolution of cataclysmic variables.
