Biography

I am a first-year graduate student and Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow in the Berkeley Astronomy Department. I am interested in theoretical and computational astrophysics.

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin, where I received B.S. degrees in Astronomy, Physics, and Mathematics in 2018. While in Texas I got my start in astronomy numerically modeling the massive star Betelgeuse with Prof. J. Craig Wheeler and Sarafina Nance and worked to test the viability of ultralight axion dark matter with Prof. Volker Bromm and Dr. Shingo Hirano as part of my astronomy honors thesis.

I was born in Washington D.C. and grew up in Northern Virginia. When I’m not working on research I like to fence, brew coffee, and explore the bay area.
