Research

My research is broadly focused on the connections between stars and the planets they host. I am an expert in high-precision optical spectroscopy of Sun-like stars. I've also discovered several exoplanets through the radial velocity technique.

I am interested in data-driven techniques for the discovery and characterization of new exoplanets. I work with data from ground-based spectrographs including HARPS and HIRES as well as space missions like Kepler and Gaia.

I also like making visualizations - see below for some fun interactive plots I've made!
