About Me:

I am a postdoctoral scholar in the Astronomy and Astrophysics Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz. My interests are mainly in supernova detection and follow-up across all wavelengths. I am currently studying supernova progenitor systems and follow-up of nearby supernovae at radio, optical, infrared, and X-ray wavelengths. Previously, I received my PhD at the University of Arizona in Tucson where I worked with George Rieke on millimeter, infrared, and optical observations of supernovae and supernova remnants interacting with dense interstellar and circumstellar material..
