me I'm a fifth-year graduate student in the astronomy department at UC Berkeley. I work with Professor Eliot Quataert, studying the intracluster medium of galaxy clusters.

I did my undergraduate work at Stanford University, where I majored in physics with a concentration in theoretical physics. My research there focused on modeling gravitational lensing by galaxy clusters.

I was born in Seattle, Washington and grew up in Santa Monica, California. When not in my office, I enjoy hiking, skiing, woodworking, growing tomatoes, traveling, and photography, among other things.

Feel free to stop by my desk in HFA or otherwise contact me via your preferred method.
