I study chemistry in protostars and protoplanetary disks, the evolutionary progenitors of planetary systems, in order to learn about how volatile/organic material is inherited during the star and planet formation process. I am currently a postdoc at the University of Chicago Department of the Geophysical Sciences. Previously, I completed my PhD at Harvard advised by Karin Öberg.
