I am a planetary scientist and Carl Sagan Institute postdoctoral Research Associate at the Cornell University Department of Astronomy.My principal scientific interest is the potential habitability of worlds both inside and outside our solar system. I have developed a revamped climate model that is used  to assess if such planets are located within the habitable zone, which is the circular region around a star in which water could exist on the surface of a planet. I also study the habitability of worlds within our solar system and use that to inform extrasolar planet habitability.
