I am a Hubble Fellow working with Fred Ciesla in the Department of the Geophysical Sciences at The University of Chicago. My research focuses on the early stages of planet formation, where microscopic dust particles coalesce to form kilometer-size planetesimals – the building blocks of planets. In particular, I am interested in how the dust’s evolution influences the distribution of important volatiles (e.g., water, organics) in the protoplanetary nebula.
