Astronomy & Space Sciences


I am a second year student working with Professor Nick Battaglia. My work has been focused on statistical analysis of thermal Sunyaev-Zeldovich maps to probe cosmological models.

I completed my bachelor degree in astrophysics at Colgate University, where I wrote an honors thesis on simulating the production of superheavy dark matter during inflation. I also spent a year as a post-bac at Los Alamos National Lab working on a gamma-ray astronomy mission concept called LOX.
