I am a first-year Miller Fellow. I use wide-field optical surveys to find phenomena associated with extreme stellar explosions, such as relativistic outflows and terminal pre-supernova mass-loss. I study these explosions using facilities across the electromagnetic spectrum, with a particular interest in long-wavelength (centimeter- and millimeter-wavelength) observations.
I obtained my PhD in Astrophysics from Caltech in 2020, under the supervision of Shri Kulkarni. I graduated from MIT in 2014 with a B.S. in Physics and spent one year on a Fulbright Scholarship at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany, working with Hans-Walter Rix and Melissa Ness on The Cannon.
