Cail is a first-year PhD student in Astronomy at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He graduated high school at Phillips Exeter Academy, and received a BA in Physics & Astronomy from Wesleyan University. As an undergraduate, Cail studied Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) observations of gas and dust in planetary systems. He worked under Dr. Meredith Hughes at Wesleyan University, and spent a summer working under Dr. Catherine Walsh at Leiden University. Cail is currently interested in using statistical and computational techniques to learn from the wealth of astronomical data to be collected by current and future generations of telescopes and surveys.
