I am a first-year PhD at the Center for Space and Habitability at the University of Bern, in Switzerland. I’m currently working on the application of atmospheric retrieval methods involving machine learning techniques to the atmospheres of brown dwarfs and directly imaged exoplanets. In doing so, I’m explicitly interested in combining Brown Dwarf theory with astrostatistics methods like Bayesian statistics.

Retrieval Study of Brown Dwarfs Across the L-T Sequence
We performed a large suite of atmospheric retrievals on a curated sample of 19 brown dwarfs spanning the entire L-T spectral types to look for trends in their properties and investigate issues with the current techniques used to examine emission spectra.
