Hi! I am a first year grad student in the astronomy department interested in astronomical instrumentation and observation. I grew up in Okoboji, IA, and I graduated from the University of Iowa with a BS in physics, BS in astronomy, and a BA in English & Creative Writing. At Iowa, I worked with Dr. Phil Kaaret on building, testing, and analyzing data from the HaloSat CubeSat and Dr. Robert Mutel on radio astronomy.
Outside of astronomy, I am super excited about all things writing/reading/art, random hobbies, and being outdoors. Feel free to contact me via email!
