Public Astronomy

As much as I love learning, it is important to me to pass on my passion and knowledge in astronomy. I am therefore involved with several public astronomy programs.

Astronomy Research

I am a research assistant at Dartmouth College, studying Quasar and AGN activity in the universe with Professor Ryan Hickox's and research group. I have also worked with the STScI and NASA conducting research in other astrophysical areas.

Amateur Astronomy

Ever since Stellafane 2015, I was inspired to explore Amateur Telescope Making and Astrophotography with the Springfield Telescope Makers Club.

If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night,
I bet they'd live a lot differently.
