Welcome! I am a second year astrophysics graduate student at Caltech interested in the formation and evolution of exoplanet systems. Currently I am working with Professor Heather Knutson on a radial velocity survey at Keck looking to statistically quantify the effect of massive, long period companions on the formation and evolution of planetary systems. Summer 2014 I will begin a survey with NIRC2 on Keck to do deep ADI imaging of known planetary mass companions (PMCs) on extremely wide orbits (separations ~100s of AU), which pose a significant challenge to existing models of planet formation.
