Academics

I am a 3rd year PhD student and NSF Graduate Research Fellow in the Department of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton and a visiting graduate student at the Institute for Advanced Study in the School of Natural Sciences. In 2017, I completed my undergraduate education at UC Berkeley in the Physics and Astronomy Departments.

Research

I work in computational, nuclear astrophysics and am primarily interested in high-energy phenomena including supernovae, compact object mergers, thermonuclear burning, and accretion disks. My PhD advisor is Jim Stone.

Equity & Inclusion, Teaching, and Outreach

I care deeply about math and science education, the accessibility of science, and equity and inclusion in physics, astronomy, and theoretical astrophysics. I put thought and effort toward these goals through my roles as a volunteer instructor of college courses in NJ prisons with PTI, an executive board member of Princeton Women in Physics, the grad student representative on our departmental climate committee, a frequent volunteer at Peyton Public Observing, and more.
