My main area of focus is understanding the processes controlling the fossilization of soft-bodied organisms and microbes. I am particularly interested in how these processes could have played out on early-Mars, performing preservation experiments which have implications for the upcoming Mars 2020 mission. I am also interested in how the properties of exoplanet atmospheres are constrained. I am currently working with Julien to understand how the dissipation and formation of clouds on hot Jupiters with eccentric orbits can affect the light curves measured.
