I’m a computational astrophysicst at the University of California, Berkeley, where I’m a PhD candidate in Physics and work in the Astronomy Department. I use simulations to understand a range of astronomical phenomena. I’m one of the primary developers of Sedona, a Monte Carlo radiation transport code. My primary research advisers are Eliot Quataert and Dan Kasen.

Previously, I was a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow and a UC Berkeley Physics Theory Fellow. I spent summer 2017 at Oak Ridge National Lab working with Bronson Messer on non-blocking communication in FLASH. I received my BS in Physics with a minor in Computer Science from Caltech.
