Grad Student, Astronomy


Pupin 1333



I'm a first-year graduate student broadly interested in computational astrophysics, especially the applications of computing to plasma astrophysics. I majored in Astrophysical Sciences and minored in Computer Science at Princeton University, where my various research projects involved the use of MHD codes to study early stellar feedback, hybrid PIC codes to study the solar wind, and machine learning to study the components of galaxy clusters.
