I study planet formation by observing the gas and dust in the disks around young stars, mostly using (sub)millimeter interferometers like the SMACARMA, and ALMA.  For more information, including short descriptions of several ongoing projects, see my research page, or check out my recent publications on ADS or arXiv.  

I am currently an assistant professor in the Wesleyan University department of astronomy, where I am fortunate to have lots of opportunities to teach, interact with the public, and do research with wonderful students and postdocs.  There’s always exciting news about our research group!
