Area of expertise

Debris disks, circumstellar disks, interferometry


My research focusses on the field of star formation and utilizes primarily submillimeter and millimeter radio telescopes to study various facets of the early beginnings of stars in our galaxy. My work falls under several general categories:

  • debris disks around young main sequence stars
  • magnetic field geometries and molecular cloud support
  • chemical properties and kinematics of low-mass cores
  • dust grain properties and populations.
