I am involved in various projects related to the study of accretion disk physics, planet formation, and computational astrophysics. I am particularly interested in the structure and evolution of protoplanetary disks and how these disks form planets.

The research projects that I am involved in are listed on the right. Click on a topic to read more about my work in that area.

Current Projects

Observing disk turbulence with ALMA

ALMA Observations of Disk Structure

Planetesimal formation

Planet formation

Magnetohydrodynamic turbulence in protoplanetary disks
