Astronomy & Space Sciences
Second-year graduate student interested in analyzing exoplanet atmospheres, specifically to identify potentially habitable planets and detecting bio-signatures.
Received bachelor's degrees from Washington State University, one in Civil Engineering in 2011 and one more recently in Astrophysics (2019). While working toward my second bachelor's, I worked with Dr. Guy Worthey looking at Type Ia Supernovae (SN Ia) and whether their distance from their host galaxy plays a role in their maximum luminosity as a potential way to explain discrepancy between SN Ia and CMB communities' Hubble constant calculations.
Outside the department, I enjoy working out, playing ultimate frisbee, and most any activity outdoors. I also like to keep my construction skills sharp through weekend home projects and volunteering at Habitat for Humanity.
