I’m a third year graduate student in the Department of Astronomy working with Prof. Josh Bloom. I received my Bacheler’s degree from Columbia University in 2018 where I worked with David Schiminovich and Greg Bryan on galaxy evolution using both observational and numerical techniques. I first became interested in astronomy on a stargazing trip at the age of 12, and I’ve been a devoted astrophotographer since then.
