My main research interest lies in the formation and evolution of gas giants, with my most recent work focusing on understanding how Jupiter's interior structure as inferred by the Juno mission can be explained. For this, we use a modified version of the stellar evolution code MESA to model the evolution of Jupiter (and gaseous planets in general) from very early formation stages until today. Previously, I've also investigated the formation of giant planets in gravitationally unstable disks. If that sounds interesting, check out the publications I've been a part of.
Over the years I've taught a variety of lab/exercises classes for graduate and undergraduate students, and supervised a few graduate semester/summer projects.
