I am currently interested in the sources of fast radio bursts, the history of ultra diffuse galaxies, and the nature of Jupiter's interior.

Previously, I worked under Fran Bagenal at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics studying the plasma in Jupiter's magnetosphere using particle data from the Juno spacecraft. On the theoretical side, I have worked with Ben Oppenheimer at the University of Colorado on numerical simulations of high-redshift galaxies to study the evolution of their circumgalactic medium compared to their more modern counterparts.
