About Me

I am currently a NASA Hubble Fellow / Lyman Spitzer Fellow at Princeton University. Prior to Princeton, I spent a carefree seven years earning my Ph.D. in astronomy and astrophysics from the University of Arizona in Tucson. Tucson is located in the Sonoran Desert of southern Arizona, home of expansive vistas and plenti of cacti, inspiring the name of my code, Cholla. Before graduate school, I spent four years getting a fantastic liberal arts education at Bryn Mawr, a women’s college just outside of Philadelphia. There I learned a lot about physics, a little about life, and of course, that the patriarchy has got to go. Outside of astronomy, I enjoy essentially any outdoor activity, including hiking, rock climbing, and walking my dog, Nacha. On indoor days I can often be found reading, listening to records, or watching my favorite shows on Netflix (let's be honest).
