About Me

I am a third year astronomy PhD student at The Ohio State University working with Professor Ji Wang on detectability of biosignatures on gas dwarfs with JWST and Twinkle. I am a former fellow in the LSSTC Data Science Fellowship Program. I received my M.A. in Astronomy from the University of Texas at Austin in 2019 and my B.S. in Physics with a minor in mathematics from The University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) in 2015.
