About Me

I am a second year graduate student in Astronomy and Astrophysics at UC Santa Cruz working with Dr. Constance Rockosi investigating the Sagittarius Stream. I completed my undergraduate degree in Physics and Astronomy at UMass Amherst in 2014 and worked primarily with Dr. Daniela Calzetti studying dust emission in galaxies.

Outside of astronomical pursuits, I dabble in art. My favorite medium is simple pencil drawings, but I also produce digital art, animations, and video games. My other hobby is spending time in nature; nothing beats a good, long hike.
