Current Graduate Student
galaxy formation and evolution; near-field cosmology; the stellar initial mass function; stellar spectroscopy; binary stars
I am a first-year grad student in astronomy. At UC Berkeley, I work with Eliot Quataert and Dan Weisz on problems in galaxy formation and evolution, with a focus on low-mass galaxies.
I was an undergrad at Yale University, where I majored in Astrophysics. I had the good fortune to first learn about galaxy evolution and low-mass galaxies from Marla Geha, who advised my undergraduate thesis.
I grew up in Roseburg, Oregon. Besides astronomy, I like memes, hiking and cycling, running, chess, and food.
