I am an Astrophysicist at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, a Lecturer in the Harvard University Department of Astronomy, and a member of the Institute for Theory and Computation, all of which are part of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. I received my Ph.D. from UC Berkeley, where I worked with Eugene Chiang.

I work on a variety of theoretical problems related to the formation and evolution of planetary systems, including the solar system. I am particularly interested in planetary dynamics, the Kuiper belt, planet formation, the atmospheres of hot Jupiters and other close-in planets, and disks around young stars. Here is my CV.
