Welcome to my research homepage — I am a staff member of the Exoplanets and Stellar Astrophysics Laboratory at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.

I work at the interface between instrumentation and observations of exoplanetary systems. I specialize in developing and applying high-contrast imaging techniques to discover and characterize planets around nearby stars.

The Coronagraph Instrument under development for the NASA Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope offers a particularly exciting opportunity in this area. This camera will be the first to probe the atmospheres of cool, mature, gas giants outside of the Solar System in reflected starlight, opening a new window into their diverse compositions and origins.
