I'm a computational astrophysicist specializing in simulations of galaxies. My research interests include (but are not limited to) improving cosmic ray transport, galactic magnetism, galactic outflows, the circumgalactic medium, galaxy clusters, and synthetic spectroscopy. I'm a fifth-year graduate student at the University of Washington and a Research Analyst/ Pre-Doctoral Fellow at the Flatiron Institute‚Äôs Center for Computational Astrophysics. Prior to starting grad school, I worked as a research assistant at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology in the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. I received my B.S. in Astrophysics from Caltech.
