I’m an astrophysics graduate student at UC Santa Cruz (2014-2019), studying the intersection of computation and physics.  My first two years I worked with Prof. Mark Krumholz, studying the effects of supernovae explosions. Now my primary advisor is Prof. Piero Madau, with whom I am working to generalize my supernovae model in order to apply it to galactic and cosmological contexts.

As an undergrad at MIT (2010-2014), I used the Hubble Space Telescope to study the most energetic processes in the universe (AGN). I also helped build experimental X-ray telescopes and devices, and I worked with an international collaboration to track how greenhouse gases move through our atmosphere.

Santa Cruz has been a great place to get outside the office. In my free time I run, hike, ski, garden and take pictures.
