About

I am a third year graduate student and a NSF Graduate Research Fellow who studies supernova progenitor systems and transient astronomy. Fascinated by the final moments of a star’s life before death, my research focuses on winding back the cosmic clock to understand how certain stars produce the various supernovae observed today. I currently work with Prof. Raffaella Margutti on combining multi-wavelength observations (radio to X-ray) of a variety of supernova types to create a complete picture of the final stages of stellar instability and mass-loss before explosion.
