The main observatories I rely on.
The goal of my research is to find more. I have spent my PhD developing new multi-wavelength tools to identify very young planets and am now applying them to several promising candidates. Confirming just one of these systems would shape our understanding of how planets form. This work has earned me the Kevin E. Strecker Award for my department’s most outstanding Master’s thesis and the William and Elva Gordon Fellowship award for research achievement; at the same time, one of my tools, which I made publicly available, has already been used by another research group to characterize a newfound young planet.
