I am a first year graduate student in astronomy. I completed my undergraduate in 2021 at Northwestern University in Physics as part of the Integrated Science Program. I work with Prof. Raffaella Margutti on multi-wavelength approaches to transients, particularly supernovae, and using them to understand stellar dynamics and mass-loss mechanisms in the astronomically short timespan prior to stellar death.
