I am a NASA Hubble Fellow at the University of Arizona’s Steward Observatory in Tucson, Arizona. My research focuses on the early stages of planet formation, where microscopic dust particles come together to form kilometer-size planetesimals – the building blocks of planets. I am also part of Project EOS, a NASA-funded research program that aims to understand how, why, and where habitable, earth-like planets form.
