I am a planetary scientist at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in San Antonio, Texas, where I am a member of the Remote Sensing Observers Group. My research focuses on the atmospheres of planets in our solar system: their chemical composition, temperature profiles and weather patterns. I work with data from both ground-based telescopes and spacecraft, and I model these observations using a radiative transfer code, NEMESIS.
I did my PhD in the Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics department at the University of Oxford, where I focussed on 5-micron spectroscopic observations of Jupiter from both Cassini/VIMS and VLT/CRIRES. I then moved to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for a NASA Postdoctoral Program Fellowship, where I used near-infrared images of Jupiter to track the cloud properties. I am now a research scientist at SwRI, where I am continuing to work with ground-based infrared data, particularly with the TEXES instrument, as well as working with ultraviolet observations of Jupiter from the UVS instrument on the Juno mission.
