Postdoctoral Research Associate, The University of Chicago

I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Department of Geophysical Sciences at the University of Chicago. I study the early stages of planet formation, where microscopic dust particles coagulate to form planetesimal-size bodies. I develop numerical models to simulate the dynamical and collisional behavior of dust grains, and am particularly interested in connecting the dust evolution to the distribution of volatiles in the protoplanetary disk.
