My letter on SN 2017cbv, a nearby Type Ia supernova with a blue bump in its light curve, has now been published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters. Read our press release here.

About Me

I'm a Ph.D. student in astrophysics at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). I do my research in the supernova group at Las Cumbres Observatory, led by Dr. Andy Howell. I also teach an observational astronomy lab at Santa Barbara City College (SBCC).

I received a B.A. in physics from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2012. After graduation, I was a DOE-INFN exchange student at Frascati National Laboratories, Italy. I then worked at Planet for several months before starting graduate school in 2013.

In my free time, I play bass trombone in the UCSB jazz ensemble.
