Research Interests: My scientific research concentrates on using low-mass brown dwarf companions as a test bed to characterize and understand nearby exoplanets. It has ranged from direct coronagraphic imaging for discovery to parallax of the nearby ones to understanding variability in these objects as well as planets such as Neptune in our own solar system. I currently serve as the Spitzer IRAC Team Lead and Visiting Graduate Fellowship Coordinator.

Activities: Spitzer Science Center
