I am a postdoctoral researcher in astrophysics at Arizona State University's School of Earth and Space Exploration. As a member of the research team led by Evgenya Shkolnik, I take part in the development of the SPARCS (Star-Planet Activity Research CubeSat) mission and conduct research on the intrinsic variability of various types of stars across the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram by means of time-resolved high-precision photometry with space-based observatories such as MOST (Microvariability and Oscillations of STars), BRITE (BRIght Target Explorer), and Kepler.

« The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. On this shore, we've learned most of what we know. Recently, we've waded a little way out, maybe ankle-deep, and the water seems inviting. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return, and we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself. »
