Research Interests

Extragalactic studies, galaxy evolution, and the circumgalactic medium.


I grew up in Minneapolis, MN then moved to Boston, MA for my undergraduate education before moving to New Mexico in 2023 for graduate school. At NMSU I work with Kristian Finlator to use the Technicolor Dawn cosmological simulation to study galaxies and their circumgalactic media, with a focus on the epoch of reionization.
