B.S. in Physics, Yale University, 2015
I study experimental high-energy astrophysics with Profs. Reshmi Mukherjee and Brian Humensky in the Columbia VERITAS/CTA group.
At present, I'm investigating deep learning techniques for signal/background classification with VERITAS and developing slow control software for the next-generation prototype pSCT gamma-ray telescope.
For my undergraduate senior thesis project, I worked with the Yale Exoplanets Group to develop a search pipeline for self-microlensing binary systems in the Kepler space telescope dataset. As an REU student at the University of Washington, I automated and operated a tabletop experiment for detecting high-mass dark matter axions.
