I am a tenure-track astronomer at Lowell Observatory (since Aug. 2006). Extrasolar planets are the main focus of my research, with an emphasis on modeling the atmospheres of substellar-mass objects. I am a co-developer of the multi-purpose model atmosphere code PHOENIX and lead-developer of the chemical equilibrium code ACES (Astrophysical Chemical Equilibrium Solver).

I am also interested in observational aspects of extrasolar planets and am the PI of an ongoing ground-based project using the Keck II telescope to measure the near-infrared flux of a few nearby hot-Jupiters.
