I am a third-year Astronomy graduate student and NSF Graduate Research Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin working with Prof. Caroline Morley. My interests are in exoplanet atmospheres and trying to understand these new worlds. My work focuses on modeling water cloud formation in the atmospheres of ultra-cool brown dwarfs and exoplanets, especially in this new era of high-resolution JWST observations.
I am working on generating water cloud models for the coolest Y dwarfs and temperate giant planets. Generating well-constrained, self-consistent atmospheric models with water clouds will be essential to studying exoplanetary and substellar atmospheres with JWST. I provide recommendations for the best practices to include water clouds in these atmospheres.
Stay tuned for the upcoming publication!
