Primary Advisor: Björn Benneke

I obtained my undergraduate degree in Honours mathematics and physics at McGill University in the spring of 2020. During my years at McGill, I joined professor Benneke’s research group at the institute for research on exoplanets (IREx) and started working on exoplanet atmosphere characterization. My first research project with professor Benneke was to use our atmosphere modeling framework to produce a model of the Earth and self-consistently model the inverted temperature structure of the Earth. In May of 2020, I started my Masters degree with professor Benneke at University of Montreal. My research focuses on atmosphere modeling and the study of sub-Neptunes.
