The history of astronomy is a history of receding horizons. --Edwin Hubble, 1936

Currently, I am a second-year graduate student working towards a PhD in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Dartmouth College. As a member of the Black Holes and Galaxies group led by Ryan Hickox, my research focus is on extragalactic astronomy. Specifically, I investigate the clustering of galaxies and quasars in the Boötes field, as well as examine the relationship between star formation and the active component of galaxies using SDSS.

In addition to my research, I have just completed a 2013-2014 fellowship through National Science Foundation GK-12 program through which I was partnered with Marion Cross Elementary in the interest of expanding and improving the science curriculum in 5th and 6th grade science classrooms.
