I’m a fourth year graduate student in the Astronomy Department at UC Berkeley, where I study computational astrophysics. I'm interested in understanding the explosions and progenitor systems of Type Ia supernovae, as well as improving their effectiveness as cosmological probes. I hang out at the Computational Cosmology Center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and I work with Peter Nugent, Rollin Thomas, and Dan Kasen.

I was born in Detroit, and I grew up in Bethesda, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, DC. I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, where I studied astrophysics and computer science with Masao Sako.
