About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, where I currently work with Prof. Sukanya Chakrabarti; We aim to use real-time Galactic dynamics to explore our Galaxy in new and exciting ways. 

My research interests include direct acceleration measurements, Galactic structure, Galactic archaeology, stellar shells, and variable stars. Most of my work involves computational physics, data science, and developing software. 

I obtained my PhD at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2023, where I studied the structure and chemical makeup of our Galaxy with Prof. Heidi Jo Nerberg.
