My department picture.

Hello and welcome!

   This is my department webpage for my time here at UCR. I am currently a third year graduate in the Physics and Astronomy department at University of California, Riverside. I work under Professor Gillian Wilson as I pursue my PhD. After graduation, I plan on continuing in academia by obtaining a post doctoral position. My long-term career goals include obtaining a tenured research faculty position and becoming an integral member of visionary collaborations which advance the field of astronomy.


My interest in Astronomy and Physics has no bounds. Currently,  my research interests include galaxy clusters, dark matter and dark energy.

Please peruse a list of my research related publications and presentations.

I participate in community outreach to share my passion for astrophysics with others.

I have begun to compile a list of useful programs, documents and links for astronomers of all levels.
