For my dissertation research, I studied the amount of ionization in a helicon plasma source by measuring the radial neutral argon profile in a helicon plasma source using laser-induced fluorescence, passive emission spectroscopy, and collisional-radiative modeling. Currently, I primarily study the plasma physics of the magnetosphere. I am very involved with supporting women in science and outreach to future scientists through organizations such as the Association for Women in Science.
