NSF Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow
My research interests include theoretical nuclear and particle astrophysics. In particular, I am interested in computational modeling of high energy astrophysical phenomena; neutrino transport and interactions in hot, dense matter; dense nuclear matter in core-collapse supernovae and neutron stars; and thermonuclear burning and nucleosynthesis.
Much of my work has centered around simulations of core-collapse supernovae and other high energy astrophysical events. I have also been involved in the development of the Notre Dame-Livermore Equation of State, a nuclear equation of state for use in core-collapse supernova and neutron star simulations.
In addition to my research, I am an advocate for LGBTQIA+ inclusion in STEM fields.
