I'm an astronomer at Dartmouth
interested in stars and
the planets that orbit them.
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Dartmouth College, where I use observations to study the physics of stars and exoplanets. I was previously a National Science Foundation Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at MIT. I completed my Ph.D. at Harvard, where I was a Fireman Fellow, Harvard Horizons Scholar and a NSF Graduate Research Fellow.
I love to share astronomy, both online and off. I teach a variety of astronomy classes at Dartmouth for undergraduate and graduate students. If you are interested in a quick tour of my research, two short talks can be watched online. My paper on the impact of stellar rotation on the detectability of habitable planets around M dwarfs was written up in the AAS Nova. You can read about our discovery of the young exoplanet DS Tuc Ab, or listen to a short radio interview.
