D. in astronomy from the University of Georgia in 2013, where his work focused on preparations for the Gemini Planet Imager Exoplanet Survey (GPIES), a survey devoted to directly imaging young planets around nearby stars.  His current research continues to investigate how planetary systems form and evolve, with the hope of better understanding the diversity of exoplanetary systems.
