My work primarily consists of studying the atmospheres of exoplanets and ultra cool brown dwarfs.

Exoplanets:

Currently I am working on the atmospheres of HAT-P-1b probing the presence of potassium in the atmosphere. Previous work includes studying the atmosphere of the super-Earth GJ1214b.

Brown Dwarfs:

My work on brown dwarfs has consisted of studying photometric variability likely caused by clouds and possibly temperature flutuations. My primary contribution to the field has been a large near-IR photometric variability monitoring survey. I have also worked with a pilot study aimed at studying cooler brown dwarfs.
