Exoplanets; Planetary Formation and Evolution, Planetary Atmospheres

My research focuses on studying the atmospheres of exoplanets with three-dimensional numerical simulations (so-called General Circulation Models or GCM). In my current project I try to understand how photochemical hazes are distributed by the atmospheric circulation of hot Jupiters. Before that, I examined the effect of including CO/CH4 disequilibrium chemistry in the General Circulation Model that our group is currently using to simulate the atmospheres of Hot Jupiters (SPARC/MITgcm).
