I am a Graduate Research Associate at the School of Earth and Space Exploration at ASU, pursuing my phD in Astrophysics.
My thesis work involves modeling "snow lines" (the regions in the disk demarcating where water is present as ice, and where it is present as vapor closer toward the star), and the distribution of water in the solar nebula. I will also explore some implications to some related problems in cosmochemistry and planetary science. You can read more about my research in my research website.
My research interests broadly surround volatiles in disks, how disk composition links to planet composition, and astrobiology.
I am part of Steve Desch's research group at the School of Earth and Space Exploration, ASU
