I am a graduate student and NSF Graduate Research Fellow working with Professor Mike McDonald.  I’m from a small rural town in Virginia and obtained my BS in Physics, with a concentration in astrophysics, at George Mason University.  My research currently focuses on using coronal lines to uncover the kinematics and thermodynamics of gas and the underlying ionization sources in galaxy clusters. I also enjoy computational research, and sometimes I even code for fun in my free time.

Research interests:

  • Galaxy clusters
  • Galaxy evolution
  • AGN feedback
  • Coronal lines
