Graduate Research Assistant
B.S. in Physics & Astronomy, University of Washington (2017)

Since joining the Computational Cosmology group, I have been studying population III star formation. Currently, I am focusing on nucleosynthesis from neutron star mergers in the early universe. In the summer of 2020, I received the FINESST award to model neutron star mergers. Throughout my time at Georgia Tech, I have been involved with the Graduate Association of Physicists as both the Secretary / Treasurer and the President. I have a passion for mentoring and teaching students.

Outside of research, I love playing video games, knitting, and cooking!
