About Me:

Hello internet. I'm currently a fifth year astronomy graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin. I use a wide range of tools, primarily numerical simulations, to study the era of the First Stars, Galaxies, and the Cosmic Dark Ages. I am jointly advised by Volker Bromm and Milos Milosavljevic.

I grew up in Los Angeles, California, and received my B.S. in astrophysics from UCLA in 2007. After a brief stint in the field of radiation safety, I moved to Austin in 2008 to pursue my Ph.D in astronomy.

In my ample spare time, I enjoy cooking, rock climbing, teaching, playing piano, volleyball, tennis, and writing brief autobiographical facts for use on my personal website.
