Research Interests

I am a second year astronomy graduate student at Columbia University working with Mary Putman on understanding on the Milky Way CGM using HST observations of low-galactic-latitude QSOs in combination with MW-analogs in simulation results (e.g., TNG-50 and FIRE). Here is the HST proposal for more information. I recently graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a degree in Astronomy/Astrophysics and Physics with a minor in Space Engineering.  For the past four years I have been researching the M81 Group under Eric Bell with data from the Subaru Telescope Hyper Suprime-Cam. I also participated in an REU through the University of Copenhagen (the Cosmic Dawn Center) with Dr. Steven Gillman using integral field spectroscopy observations of high-redshift star-forming galaxies.
