About Me

I am currently a postdoc at DTU in Denmark and work with João Mendonça. I mainly study how different atmospheric processes operate together on terrestrial planets. My current main project is the development of cloud and chemistry modules for the Venus GCM.

In 2018-2022, I pursued a PhD in planetary science at UC Santa Cruz. There I worked with Xi Zhang to study chemistry, clouds and dynamics in the Venus atmosphere. I also worked with Francis Nimmo to study geophysics of icy satellites.
