Graduate Student

I am currently a graduate student in the MIT physics department, working with Prof. Michael McDonald. My current research interest is in galaxy clusters, specifically trying to identify clusters with an extreme point source (like an AGN or a starburst) in the central brightest cluster galaxy (BCG). I am working mostly with optical and X-ray data, using 6.5m Magellan telescope in Chile and Chandra space telescope, respectively.

I graduated from University of Chicago with the major in physics. My previous undergraduate research is mostly about exoplanets, especially transiting exoplanet with Kepler data.
