I am a third-year PhD student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at UC Davis, working with Dr. Andrew Wetzel to study the distribution of dark matter subhalos around the Milky Way using the FIRE simulations.
I earned my B. S. in Physics from UC Santa Barbara in 2013, and my M. S. in Physics from CSU Long Beach in 2020. I have also worked seasonally as a museum guide at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles since 2012.
I am interested in using computers to learn about the natural history of the universe at all scales. This includes the evolutionary history of life on earth, the structure and evolution of stars and planets, and how the nature of the universe as a whole determines these evolutionary pathways.
