Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy

I am an observational astronomer studying the physics of stars and their planets, using data from ground-based observatories such as SALT and MDM. I investigate how the spin and magnetic properties of stars are related, and how these stellar properties change with time. I also work to detect and characterize exoplanets around young and magnetically active stars in order to understand how exoplanets form and evolve.
