I am a research scientist (at the Earth-Life Science Institute) that studies potentially habitable worlds. I develop atmospheric models to assess the physical processes that make planets habitable, including improving definitions of the habitable zone that are used to target potentially habitable worlds. I also study the habitability of worlds within our solar system to better understand extrasolar planet habitability.
