I am a fourth-year Peirce Fellowship graduate student at Harvard University, working with Prof. Charlie Conroy. I have worked with Prof. Smadar Naoz, Prof. Michael Fitzgerald, and Prof. Jim Fuller (at the California Institute of Technology) throughout my undergraduate degree at UCLA. I am originally from Sydney, Australia.

I was recently a full-time Research Analyst during the first half of 2023 at the Simons Foundation’s Flatiron Institute Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA) as part of their Pre-Doctoral Program. I worked with Matteo Cantiello, Mathieu Renzo, and Jared Goldberg.
