I am a first year graduate student in the Department of Astronomy at UC Berkeley. I am interested in studying high energy astrophysics. 

I graduated from MIT in 2017 with a bachelor's degree in math and physics. During my time there, I had the opportunity to do research in the Center for Theoretical Physics with Professor Tracy Slatyer, studying the distribution of pulsars "kicked" out from the galactic disc, and with Professor Alan Guth, studying hybrid inflation and primordial black holes. 

When I am not hanging out in Campbell Hall, I like to play the piano, guitar, and trombone (not all at the same time), explore the outdoors on bike and foot, and go to the grocery store.
