I perform both low- and high-resolution transmission spectroscopy of transiting exoplanets. I am currently particularly interested in studying evaporating exoplanets via observations of helium at 10833A, searching for the alkali metals in hot Jupiter atmospheres using Magellan/MIKE, and performing retrieval analyses of low-resolution transmission spectra gathered via the LRG-BEASTS and ACCESS surveys.
