About Me

My deep interest in life beyond Earth has led me to research four aspects of astrobiology: the habitability of planetary interiors, the elemental requirements of life, prebiotic synthesis, and atmospheric biosignature detection. While trained in astrophysics and space instrumentation, I have chosen to get a grasp, uniquely obtained through research, on biology, geology, and chemistry. In the Desch group, my research focuses on modeling the geophysics and geochemistry of dwarf planet interiors to assess their habitability.
