Welcome! I am an AIP Congressional Science Fellow for 2018-2019 in the United States House of Representatives, as part of the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships program.

Previously, I was an NSF Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of VirginiaDepartment of Astronomy. I worked with Prof. Craig Sarazin on understanding the hydrodynamical evolution of galaxies in hot intracluster medium gas. Before that, I was a graduate student in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My thesis advisor was Prof. Paul Ricker.

My scientific expertise is in theoretical and computational astrophysics, using numerical simulations to understand the evolution of galaxies in massive groups and clusters primarily with the astrophysical simulation code FLASH.
