Educational Background

  • BA in Astronomy and Physics, Boston University 2020

Research Interests

My current research interests lie broadly in extragalactic observational astronomy. I also have research experience in radio astronomy. I have created a 5 GHz continuum map of inner Galactic Plane as a summer student at Green Bank Observatory as well as analyzed the performance of one of the receivers when measuring high energy transition in HII regions and planetary nebulae.


I grew up in Ukraine and first came to the US in 2016.
In my free time I work on improving the quality of astronomy education in Ukraine by writing free webinars for young astronomy enthusiasts. I am also interested in providing opportunities for undergraduate students to connect with graduate students and faculty.
