I am a fifth-year graduate student in the Astronomy Department at Harvard University. I am working with David Charbonneau to investigate the frequency, composition, and detectability of small planets around small stars using Kepler and the high-precision HARPS-North spectrograph at the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo in La Palma. I am supported by the National Science Foundation through the Graduate Research Fellowship Program.

I obtained my bachelor's degree in Astrophysical Sciences from Princeton University in June 2010 and my master's degree in Astronomy and Astrophysics from Harvard University in 2012.
