Graduate Student

Office: BRT

Educational Background

  • I obtained my AA in Astronomy at Santa Fe College and my BcS in Astrophysics at the University of Florida.

Research Interests

My main research interest is on the detection of extrasolar planets. However, most recently I gained interest in the simulation of stellar spectra, and use of simulations to parameterize planetary-host stars.


I’m very passionate about observational astronomy and astrophotography. It’s an amazing hobby that I’m always trying to get better at.
