Welcome! I am an NSF Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Virginia, Department of Astronomy. I work with Prof. Craig Sarazin on understanding the hydrodynamical evolution of galaxies in hot intracluster medium gas.
In the recent past, 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.
I am a theoretical and computational astrophysicist -- I use numerical simulations to understand the evolution of galaxies in massive groups and clusters. I primarily use the astrophysical simulation code FLASH.
