Research Interests

I am a PhD candidate in the astrophysics program at California Institute of Technology, working with Prof. Geoffrey Blake. My main research interests are circumstellar disks around young stars, which are birth cradle of planetary systems like our solar system. I study gas and dust distributions in disks to see what are the physical and chemcial environments of planet formation and how we can trace young planets from their footprints in the parent disks.
