I’m a Ph.D. student in the UC Berkeley Department of Astronomy. I use computer simulations, order-of-magnitude physics, and data from telescopes big and small to try to better understand how the universe works.

I’m interested in binary stars, Milky Way stellar populations, and galaxy formation. More generally, I like exploring astronomical datasets and developing new methods to extract information from data. My advisors are Eliot Quataert and Dan Weisz. I also work extensively with Hans-Walter Rix.

I was an undergrad at Yale University, where I worked with Marla Geha. I graduated with a B.S. in astrophysics in 2016.
