About

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the NASA Postdoctoral Program at Goddard Space Flight Center, in the Planetary Systems Laboratory (Code 693), working with Dr. Geronimo Villanueva.

I am interested broadly in planetary atmospheres, more specifically in aeronomy and atmospheric chemistry. My current research is focused on the atmosphere of Mars using data from the Neutral Gas and Ion Mass Spectrometer (NGIMS) onboard the NASA Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) mission and the Nadir and Occultation for MArs Discovery (NOMAD) insrument on the ESA ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO).

I received a Doctorate and Master of Science in Planetary Sciences from the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona, where my advisor was Prof. Roger V. Yelle; a Master of Science in Organic Chemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles, while working in the lab of Prof. Timothy J. Deming, where I synthesized polypeptides developed as biomolecular materials for, e.g., drug delivery; and a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Texas at Dallas, where I synthesized organic polymers for, fabricated, and tested polymer solar cells with Prof. John P. Ferraris.
