Research Interests: 

I am a postdoctoral fellow at Amherst College studying the accretion of material onto T Tauri stars. I use multi-wavelength observations, models, and simulations to disentangle different sources of variability and learn about the structure of the accretion shock that forms near the stellar surface.

Teaching Statement: 

I teach ASTR 337 (Observational Techniques) and ASTR 341 (Observational Astronomy) at Amherst College as a part of the FCAD Fellowship.
