I'm an assistant professor of astronomy at Amherst College specializing in the climate of exoplanets. Specifically, i construct maps of these distant worlds by monitoring how their brightness and color change with time, exo-cartography (for a slightly more detailed description, read this). I'm an instigator of the ExoClimes meetings, which (unsurprisingly!) cover most of the scientific areas that interest me. As a member of NASA's ExoPAG executive committee, i promote research in exoplanet climate and help map out the landscape of future exoplanet missions. When not working, i can usually be found playing with my son and enjoying the outdoors.
