I study (exo)planets and history.
I am a senior at MIT studying planetary science, history, and a smidgen of computer science. My planetary science research focuses on extrasolar planets and their atmospheres, and my history research focuses on the late modern history of science and its relationship to structures of oppression. Next year, I will be pursuing an MPhil in History and Philosophy of Science as a Gates Cambridge scholar at Cambridge University, and in 2021 I will return to the other Cambridge to pursue a PhD in Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University. In my free time, I listen to podcasts, play various musical instruments, and try to spend time with trees.

I am majoring in Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences with a concentration in Planetary Science & Astronomy. I'm interested in planets and atmospheres and small bodies of all Solar Systems, but especially ones ⪆150 AUs away.
I am also pursuing a joint major in History and Computer Science (not History of Computer Science, although that's also pretty cool too). I started in the history of the Middle East in the 20th century, and then slowly realized that colonialism and structures of oppression are things that science is also embedded in, and now I find myself doing history of science/tech.
I also love teaching, outreach, advocacy, and various community organizations I'm involved with. Right now, a lot of my time is spent on shared governance at MIT, as:
