NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics
Postdoctoral Fellow

I completed my Ph.D. in May 2017 working with Dr. David Wilner on 'Millimeter Studies of Nearby Debris Disks.' Since Sepetember 2017, I am an NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics postdoctoral fellow at the Carnegie Institution for Science, Department of Terrestrial Magnetism (DTM) in Washington, D.C. Much of my work makes use of a variety of (sub)millimeter and radio interferometers, including the Submillimeter Array (SMA), the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA), the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (JVLA), and the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA). For more information, including short descriptions of several ongoing projects, see my research and publications pages, or check out a complete list of my publications on ADS.

I am also a member of the NASA Far-Infrared Science Interest Group (FIR SIG) Leadership Council and the Origins Space Telescope (OST) Disks and Planet Formation Working Group. For more information on current activities in the FIR community, please check out our website.

Outside of research, I am actively involved in a number of outreach programs and organizations supporting women in STEM fields. I am currently working to design an astronomy curriculum for the Carnegie First Light program, a weekend science program for Washington, D.C. middle school students. I also serve as a WorldWide Telescope Ambassador and taught with Science Club for Girls throughout most of college and graduate school. In my spare time, I am an avid runner, hiker, and mountaineer, and play violin in various community and pit orchestras.
