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. Ive also done work in astrobiology and exoplanets.


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 where, in addition to my research, I also TA the AST1022L course. When I’m not doing that, I’m likely cooking or out tending the garden.
