About me

I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Toronto in 2018, specializing in Physics and Astronomy. As an undergraduate student, I had the opportunity to work on several research projects in different fields including celestial mechanics, atmospheric physics, and planetary geology. Moving forward, I want to combine my interests in these fields and pursue a career in planetary science.


Currently, I am a Master's student at the University of Western Ontario in Geophysics and Planetary Science, under the supervision of Dr. Catherine Neish. 


When I'm not learning about space, I enjoy reading and being outdoors. Hiking and canoeing are my

go-to hobbies.

Research Interests

  • Planetary Surfaces
    • Studying surfaces is important in order to understand the planet's origin and evolution
  • Planetary Analogues
    • Earth is the starting point for understanding the origin of other planetary bodies and the processes that govern them
  • Outer Solar System Moons
    • Moons such as Enceladus, Titan, and Europa offer a promising site to search for life
