I am interested in circumstellar disks and planet formation, with a current focus on protoplanetary disks in the Orion Cluster. I use ALMA to measure disk masses and sizes, revealing their potential for planet formation. I study disk evolution and the impact of the environment on disks by examining trends in disk properties with stellar type and by comparing disks from various star-forming regions.
