Research Interests

I am a Google Lick Predoctoral Fellow in the Filippenko research group working with telescopes located at the Lick Observatory on Mt. Hamilton, CA. My interests include stellar evolution and time domain astronomy. I conduct research on Type Ia supernovae and oversee a team of undergraduate researchers using the 0.76-m Katzman Automatic Imaging Telescope (KAIT) and 1-m Nickel telescope.
