My research focuses on chemical processes in the atmospheres of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and extrasolar giant planets. This work is done by constructing thermochemical and photochemical models of planetary atmospheres in order to understand the reaction behavior, transport properties, and observational effects of key atmospheric constituents. The goal of my research is to interpret the underlying chemistry for spectroscopic observations of planetary atmospheres, and to yield insights into the formation and evolution of planetary systems.
