- Ph.D., University of Texas
- Low-mass stars and brown dwarfs
- Star and planet formation
- Process of star and planet formation
- She is particularly interested in objects known as brown dwarfs which are thought to form like stars but have very low masses and temperatures (similar to extrasolar planets). She uses wide-field imaging, spectroscopy and laser-guide star adaptive optics to discover planetary-mass brown dwarfs and determine their masses and ages.
