Exploring the Universe
One galaxy at a time
I am a graduate student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Dartmouth College. I work with Prof. Ryan Hickox and Dr. Kevin Hainline to explore the properties of active galactic nuclei (AGNs), specifically obscured quasars. I work to discover the fraction of obscured quasars in the universe, and hope to model and understand their distribution with redshift.
I am also a proud 2014-2015 NSF Graduate STEM Fellow in K-12. As a GK-12 Fellow, I strive to enrich the classroom experience at the Frances C. Richmond Middle School in Hanover, NH, while improving my own teaching and communication skills. My main goal is to keep students excited in science at a very critical time in their lives. I work to keep it interesting, keep their minds moving, and keep them questioning everything around them.
