About

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. I work on modeling and observations of star formation within the Milky Way. I am interested in exploring how the spectral energy distributions and the physical properties of young stellar objects are related, and to use this knowledge in combination with large surveys of star-formation regions to examine how the physical properties of young stars vary within a given regions, and from one region to another.
