am a second-year graduate student in the Astronomy Department at UC
Berkeley. I recently earned my M.A. in astrophysics from UCB in 2013 so
the three to four-year journey to PhD has begun. I did my undergraduate
at the University of Arizona earning a
B.S. in physics, astronomy in 2012.
I lived in Arizona most of my life so am still adjusting to the
"harsher cold" of Berkeley. To keep sane, I play tennis and do martial
arts (at the Berkeley rec center) almost every week.
