About Me

Thesis: Climate Modeling of Titan

Advisors: Joellen Russell, Jonathan Lunine

I am currently a planetary science graduate student at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, at the University of Arizona. My Ph.D. advisor is Joellen Russell, and I also work closely with Jonathan Lunine.

My research focuses on Titan, Saturn's enigmatic moon. I have studied both Titan's surface and atmosphere, using a combination of data from Cassini-Huygens and numerical modeling. The latter mostly involves a detailed general circulation model (GCM) that I have adapted for modeling Titan's climate.
