Research Interests

My research interests are in exoplanets. I am interested in using simulation-based statistical methods, like approximate Bayesian computation, to understand the orbital architectures of exoplanets populations discovered with space-based transit surveys such as Kepler and the upcoming TESS mission. As the director of the Preston Gott Observatory, I am also interested in using small telescopes for photometric follow-up of targets from both ground and space-based exoplanet transit surveys.
