I am a postdoctoral researcher employed by the University of Maryland, College Park, working at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center through the CRESST II cooperative agreement (functionally, I work at NASA Goddard, but I am paid by UMD). I started this position in August, 2022.

I did my PhD at Johns Hopkins University, working with both Dan Coe (at the Space Telescope Science Institute, across the street from JHU), and Stephan McCandliss. My PhD primarily focused on exploring the small-scale details of distant galaxies using the combined power of the Hubble Space Telescope and gravitational lensing, but in the early years I also dabbled in launching sub-orbital sounding rockets.

Prior to starting at JHU, I got my B.A. in Physics at the University of Chicago.
