"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed." Albert Einstein - Living Philosophies
I am a PhD candidate in Astronomy at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) working with the research group of Prof. Jason H. Steffen. I joined the program in Fall 2017. I research the formation and evolution of planets from their interiors to their dynamics through computational techniques. I am interested in incorporating astrophysics and geophysics into an integrated understanding of planetary systems.
I love sharing science with others whether through my teaching, talks, or through outreach. I founded and emcee Astronomy on Tap, Las Vegas which shares space-related research through a fun pub trivia event.
