The MIT Kavli Institute paves the way for new developments in space- & ground-based astrophysics. Our faculty, research staff, and students develop technology & instrumentation with a focus on an engineering and technical core.
Researchers at The Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research explore extreme and unusual phenomena found beyond the Earth including extrasolar planets, black holes, neutron stars, and distant galaxies and clusters of galaxies.
I am from Anaheim, California and received my B.S. in physics from California State University, Fullerton. My undergraduate research was with Professor Geoffrey Lovelace and focused on numerically simulating colliding black holes and numerically modeling mirror coating thermal noise. I began my graduate studies at MIT in the fall of 2017 and work in the LIGO lab with Professor Matthew Evans on various instrumentation related projects to improve LIGO's sensitivity.
