I’m an astrophysics graduate student at UC Santa Cruz, 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 results in order to apply them 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 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 and have gotten interested in photography.
