Graduate student in astronomy at the Department of Astronomy, Columbia University

I am a graduate student working on calibrating the properties of Kepler planet host stars using transit data. My previous research has focused on the accretion history of the Milky Way, from understanding the Milky Way's satellite galaxy population in a broader cosmological context to analyzing the dynamics of tidal streams in the Milky Way halo. More recently I have been investigating the use of machine learning techniques for exoplanetary science.
