I am a cosmo/geochemist who is interested in understanding the chemical/isotopic structure and evolution of the early solar system and terrestrial planets. My work also focuses on instrumentation and method development, as well as modeling planetary formation.

I received my Bachelor and Master of Science degrees from the University of Maryland, College Park. In September, 2021, I joined the Earth and Planetary Science department at Rutgers University as the Earth and Planetary Science Isotope Laboratory Manager.
