Interests: all (observational) things stars and planets! Current projects include (i) continued follow up and characterization of subgiant exoplanet systems to investigate what happens to planets as their hosts evolve off the main sequence (including star/planet and planet/planet interactions). (ii) asteroseismology of solar-like oscillators and detection/characterization of exoplanets with the NASA Kepler/K2 and TESS missions. (iii) exploring new spectral lines as proxies for stellar activity which will be broadly applicable to current and next-generation optical spectrometers (i.e. NEID, Keck Planet Finder).
