I am currently a National Science Foundation Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow.  I am studying neutrino flavor mixing in the core-collapse supernova environment and creating the first fully dynamic simulations of neutrino flavor mixing in a realistic supernova model.


Previously, I was a postdoctoral research associate at Michigan State University, where I am working with Professor Sean Couch on multidimensional supernova modeling and stellar evolution.

I received my PhD in Physics in May 2016 from the University of Notre Dame.  I worked with Professor Grant Mathews on supernova modeling.  I obtained my BA in Physics in 2011 from Reed College in Portland, Oregon.
