I am a post-doc at the University of Washington's School of Oceanography. I completed my PhD at the Planetary Science Institute at the Australian National University. As an astrobiologist, I am interested in understanding planetary habitability and the origin and evolution of life on Earth by chemical and genomic analysis of extant life and its environments.

I am passionate about communication of science. My academic and media contributions are listed on the Publications & Activities page.
