  • B.A., Physics, University of Florida, 2015
Areas of Specialty
Star Formation in the Milky Way, hyperfine data fitting

Research Interests
I work on star formation research as a part of the CHaMP team. I perform 3mm line analysis on HCN in the survey in order to find measurements of the column density and mass of these clouds. Previous to this I briefly worked with exoplanet orbits using n-body integration.

Biography
After growing up on the sunny shores of Ormond Beach I arrived at the University of Florida to receive my degrees in astronomy and physics in 2015. Following this, I came back to UF in 2016 for the astronomy graduate program. In addition to classes and research, I also TA the AST1022L course.
