I am a cometary scientist and spectroscopist. My research focuses on the molecular composition of and distribution of gases surrounding small bodies in the Solar System and how they relate to the protoplanetary disk and early processes within from which we formed. I was on the Deep Impact, EPOXI, and Rosetta missions and Comet Hopper concept study. Recently, I have expanded my observing methods to include time domain astronomy with a long-term survey of many small body targets being conducted with the Discovery Channel Telescope in Arizona in partnership with Lowell Observatory. I am interested in supporting and increasing the number of women and under-represented minorities in STEM and am the faculty advisor of the Astronomy Gentleladies' Network.
