I’m currently an Astronomy & Astrophysics PhD student at the University of Michigan. My research interests are broadly centered around using numerical techniques to explore questions about star and planet formation. My thesis work is aimed at studying self consistent gravitationally driven (cold collapse) models of star cluster formation from cluster to protostar scales in hopes of understanding observations of protostar/disk populations.

My interdisciplinary interests lie in thinking about science communication and informal learning in spaces such as museums. I’m currently enrolled in the Museum Studies graduate certificate program here at Rackham.
