Research Interests: Neutrino theory and phenomenology

I am a 1st year Ph.D. student in physics, interested in the fundamental nature of neutrinos and how they relate to the hardest questions posed to us by the universe, such as dark matter and baryogenesis. I received a B.S. in Astrophysics from Yale University in 2020 and have done research on neutrinoless double-beta decay at the University of North Carolina and protostellar evolution at the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard.

While not studying physics, I enjoy being in nature, playing chess, and cooking.
