I am a member of the Theoretical High Energy Astrophysics (THEA) group where I study high energy and nuclear phenomena using a combination of numerical methods (simulations) and analytical models. I'm broadly interested in the astrophysical sources of the heaviest elements in the universe like gold and platinum, which are produced by r-process nucleosynthesis. I was born in Queens so I consider myself a native New Yorker, even though I was raised in New Jersey (I grew up near the Jersey Shore, but I've never seen the show). I completed my undergraduate studies in physics and philosophy at Rutgers University in 2022.
I am always happy to discuss my current or past work; just reach out!
I love travel-backpacking, running, and cycling. I also enjoy scuba diving and hope to get my divemaster certification some day.
