I was born in Bethesda, MD, and grew up in the circumference of a hadron collider in Switzerland, in a valley between the Jura and the Alps.

I graduated from USC in 2015 with Bachelor’s degrees in physics and mathematics. I began graduate work in physics at MIT with Josh Winn, and transferred to Princeton to continue the same. I completed my doctoral studies at Princeton’s Department of Astrophysical Sciences in 2021. During graduate school, I enjoyed fruitful collaboration with the TESS science team, as well as the architects and executors of the HAT Exoplanet Surveys.

I am now a postdoctoral fellow at Caltech, and I reside in Pasadena, CA. Hobbies of choice include puppy parenting, rock climbing, and the search for the perfect espresso.
