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

Currently, I am a third-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 examine the connection 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.
