My primary interests in research lie in stellar astrophysics and structure. I am currently working with Dr. Jason Nordhaus on simulations and data mapping for binary and multibody stellar systems. In the past I've worked in observational astronomy on a project involving variable stars and on the MEGARA team when the instrument was first being introduced, as well as in theory on a project involving Parker's instability in plasmas. I am also very interested in diversity and inclusion in STEM, teaching, and mental health advocacy.
