Eryn Cangi in front of Mount Rainier

I study the role of water and deuterium in escape of Martian atmosphere, working with Mike Chaffin and Nick Schneider as part of the MAVEN team. I'm also broadly interested in planetary climates, atmospheres and surface interaction, exoplanet characterization, solar system formation and evolution, and - most especially - data science. In the past, I've worked on applied mathematical models for astrophysical pattern formation, atmospheric tides on Earth, and using astronomical imaging techniques to detect and quantify global thin cirrus cloud coverage.
