I am currently a Carnegie Fellow in Astronomy and Planetary Science at the Carnegie Observatories in Pasadena, CA, USA.
I work on detection and characterization of exoplanets using precise radial velocities (RVs). My current research focuses on improving the RV precision, through:
- better understanding of stellar activity and jitter (PI for the RVxK2 and RVxTESS projects);
- better treatment of telluric contamination (team lead for the EarthFinder tellurics study);
- better data analysis techniques (team member of NEID and MINERVA).
I’m also a Co-I for a southern hemisphere TESS follow-up program using Magellan/PFS (the Magellan TESS Survey, or MTS).
