Planetary Science, Ph.D.
Carnegie Institution for Science
University of Rochester
I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism, Carnegie Institution for Science and will be an assistant professor in July 2018 at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (primary) and Physics and Astronomy (secondary) at the University of Rochester.
I am looking for students and postdocs who are excited to explore Earth, the solar system and beyond!
My goal is to build theoretical models to explain geochemical, geophysical, and astronomical observations. My research focuses on the formation and evolution of terrestrial planets. Click the images below for details!
We constrain the early Earth's condition based on geodynamical models combined with geochemical observations.
We model the origin of the Martian moons, Phobos and Deimos, and make predictions for future missions.
We suggest that whether an exoplanet can form an impact-induced exomoon strongly depends on the planetary mass and composition.
