I am an Astronomy Ph.D. candidate at The Ohio State University working with Professor Ji Wang on detectability of potential biosignatures like ammonia (NH3) in gas dwarfs withJWST and Twinkle and Dr. Jackie Faherty at the American Museum of Natural History on retrievals of planetary-mass brown dwarfs to understand their formation pathways. I am also a former fellow in the LSSTC Data Science Fellowship Program. My research interests include brown dwarf and exoplanet atmospheric characterization and detection, atmospheric retrievals, habitability studies related to biosignature detection, and substellar evolution. I received my M.A. in Astronomy from the University of Texas at Austin in 2019 and my B.S. in Physics with a minor in mathematics from The University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) in 2015.
