Our group conducts research in the emerging field of pre-biotic astrochemistry where we investigate the chemical mechanisms in space that lead to the development of biological systems. Our research draws from the forefronts of laboratory spectroscopy, observational astronomy, and chemical modeling. It is only through this type of fully integrated research combining spectroscopy, observations, and modeling that we will fully understand the mechanisms driving interstellar chemistry and the pathways for the formation of life.

Our mission statement is: "We strive to build a respectful, supportive, and inclusive environment where we work as a team, follow our curiosity, maintain a strong work/life balance, and serve our community while doing excellent science."

We hope you'll enjoy your visit and won't hesitate to contact us for any reason!
