About Me

I completed my undergraduate studies in Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign before joining the extragalactic research group at the University of Texas at Austin. My research interests include cosmological model selection, near-field cosmology, galaxy formation & evolution, and big data & statistics.

In my free time I hike & collect bugs, sew/craft all sorts of things, and cuddle my goofy rescue dog. I also work with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas


Planes of satellite galaxies in the Local Group and beyond
