I'm a planetary science PhD student at Brown University with the Mustard Lab Group. My current research
covers Mars astrobiology, exoplanet phase curves, and exoplanetary atmospheres. In the past, I've researched lunar geochemistry, chondrule formation, mineral physics, and white dwarf exoplanet detection. Growing up on the Big Island of Hawaii around brilliant planetary scientists and astronomers left me obsessed with the possibilities of extraterrestrial life, solar system colonization, and what our species might accomplish when it is interplanetary. One day I hope to travel to the Moon, Mars, asteroids, and even outer solar system moons, if human technology allows it.
