Research Interests

Hi! I'm a first-year astronomy PhD student, interested in near-field cosmology, Galactic dynamics, and dark matter, among other topics. In general, I'm curious to explore the Local Universe and what we can understand from our Galaxy and the galaxies immediately around it. Most of my completed work so far has been on stellar streams in the Milky Way, but my current project is working with Prof. Kathryn Johnston using simulations to analyze the phase space spirals in the Milky Way disk.

Don't hesitate to reach out if we have similar interests!
