I assist with several introductory labs and lectures in the physics department. I also manage the Stephens Observatory, other department telescopes, and direct shows for the Ladd Planetarium.

I have worked as an observing assistant at the Stull Observatory in NY and as a temporary researcher at NASA Goddard. My graduate research focused on the quantifying the dynamics in cumulonimbus for climate models. In my spare time I like reading about the chemistry and physics of coffee, hunting for atmospheric optics events, and studying heliophysics.
