UChicago seminar, 16 September 2020

I will be giving a special seminar at UChicago and virtually visiting the department for the day.

Astrochemical Frontiers, 18 June 2020

At this virtual meeting held over Zoom, I presented a contributed talk on my recently-published accretion paper.

Thesis Advisory Committee Meeting #2, 7 May 2020

In our second TAC meeting, I presented my upcoming projects and update on my status towards my degree.

ITC Lunch Talk, 31 October 2019

The ITC (Institute for Theory and Computation, a subset of the CfA) has a lunch series every week. This short talk presented my work on protoplanetary disk accretion and chemistry.

Thesis Advisory Committee Meeting #1, 8 October 2019

The Astronomy Department requires that students meet with their TAC each semester to gauge their progress towards their degrees and advise them on projects and career goals. In this first meeting, I presented on two research papers in progress.

PETSc Users Meeting, 7 June 2019

As an invited speaker to the PETSc Users Meeting, I presented my work on two different projects in planet formation that make use of the PETSc software. First, I explain my work with accretion streams and chemistry, then I move on to tidally-distorted exoplanets.

Öberg Group Meeting, 1 February 2019

At our weekly group meeting, I introduced work I do with Prof. Leslie Rogers at UChicago, affectionately dubbed the “squishy planets” project. We simulate planetary interiors to determine how planets deform in extreme gravitational fields.

Öberg/Knight Joint Group Meeting, 31 August 2018

At this joint group meeting between the Öberg and Knight groups at Harvard, I gave an overview of my primary research project on the effects of protoplanetary disk accretion on chemistry in the disk.

Pizza Ponder, 14 August 2018

In a presentation to the graduate students in our summer series, Pizza Ponder, I gave recommendations for scientific software useful in a variety of situations, including PETSc, GSL, and VTK, along with small code snippets.

Research Exam, 10 May 2018

The research exam is an important hurdle and requirement by the Astronomy Department at Harvard in a student's early graduate career. I presented to a small committee my work so far in the graduate program. I make my slides public in the hope that they will help future students prepare for their own exams.

Exoplanets III, 27 – 31 July 2020

For this virtual conference, I submitted this HTML poster on my work modeling tidally-distorted ultra-short period rocky exoplanets.

Astrochemistry 2018, 11 July 2018

I presented this poster at the Astrochemistry: Past, Present, and Future meeting held on Caltech's campus from 10 July – 13 July, 2018. The poster is an overview of my progress on my disk chemistry evolution project.

GRC Origins of Solar Systems, 18 – 23 June 2017

This conference, held on the campus of Mount Holyoke College, brought together scientists from both the astrochemistry and meteoritics communities, to discuss the topics of planet formation and habitability.

IAUS 332: Astrochemistry VII, 20 – 24 March 2017

This IAU symposium was held in Puerto Varas, Chile and brought together an international group of astrochemists.
