I am a multi-wavelength stellar astronomer who studies the dynamics of cool stellar outer atmospheres.  My current research interests include the observable manifestations of magnetic fields and their impacts as a function of stellar age, binarity, and mass.

I am the Deputy Project Scientist for JWST, NASA’s next flagship astrophysics mission.
