I’m a fifth (and final) year grad student in astronomy. I work with Eliot Quataert and Dan Weisz on problems in stellar physics, galaxy formation, and Milky Way stellar populations.

I grew up in Roseburg, Oregon. Besides astronomy, I like food, hiking and cycling, running, chess, and memes. Find me in Campbell 407.
