Current Graduate Students


Research interests: planet formation, galaxy formation, star clusters, SMBHs…

Before beginning graduate school at Berkeley, I completed my undergraduate degrees in physics and astrophysics…at Berkeley. I grew up in Michigan not far from Ann Arbor, but couldn’t stand the cold and so ever since I graduated high school I’ve been hiding out here in California.

In my free time, I run/race (~10k-half marathons), hike, and rewatch my favorite TV series (e.g., The West Wing, Doctor Who, Star Trek…) or reread my favorite books (e.g., The Name of the Wind, Ender’s Game) over and over. I also enjoy all things hummus: eating hummus, talking incessantly about hummus, and (most recently) making hummus.
