PhD Scholar, Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Australian National University

I am a PhD student at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Australian National University.

My primary research goals are directed toward modelling, observing and identifying biosignatures. I am currently investigating the abiotic chemical disequilibria in Exo-Earth atmospheres in order to recalibrate biosignature models and reduce false positives.

My future research plans include further exploration of exoplanets’ atmospheric composition, habitability, and the possibility of life in the universe.
