I am a senior completing a double major in astrophysics and physics. I am working with Dan Zevin on the COFFIES ASSURE REU program! I was always interested in astronomy growing up, and am also passionate about outreach and increasing diversity in STEM. I am a community college transfer student, and prior to transfer worked with Mission College’s Mathematics, Engineering, and Sciences Achievement program (MESA). Since transferring, I have primarily worked on supernova research. I am excited to have the opportunity to build on those experiences with COFFIES! In my free time, I like to spend time hiking and exploring national and state parks with my two kids, or learning to build and/or repair all kinds of things(electronics to planters, and everything in between!).
