I completed my Ph.D. in Physics & Astronomy at the University of Rochester, under the direction of Dr. Adam Frank. I'm now working as a Computational Astrophysicist in the Center for Theoretical Astrophysics at Los Alamos National Laboratory. My research primarily focuses on the formation and evolution of molecular clouds and stars, but I am also interested in the dynamics of supernova engines, protoplanetary disks, exoplanetary atmospheres/climate, and astrochemistry.

Outside of astrophysics, I am drawn to theoretical neuroscience, contemplative practice, art, jazz, and coming into contact with the sacred depths of nature.
