Bio: I am currently a staff scientist at Caltech/IPAC. Before that I worked at Draper Lab for two years preceded by a postdoc at the University of Michigan. I am most interested in high contrast imaging & interferometry of young stars, wavefront sensing, and star & planet formation. I'm originally from the Bronx, NY, I spent my PhD years in Baltimore, and have hopped around between Ann Arbor, Boston, and now Pasadena. I care a lot about STEM education on all levels and showcasing the human side of scientific research.
