I am a second-year graduate student with interests in optical/IR instrumentation, galaxies, and cosmology. I am also especially interested in using statistical techniques and data science to analyze large survey data. I am working with the La Silla Schmidt Southern Survey collaboration at LBNL on DECam CCD characterization and optimization. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a B.S. in Physics, B.S. in Astrophysics, and a minor in mathematics, where I worked with Alexandra Pope and Grant Wilson on developing predictive simulations to guide observations for the TolTEC camera, a millimeter-wave detector on the Large Millimeter Telescope.
