About me:

I am a fourth year graduate student in the
Department of Astronomy
at UC Berkeley, where I work with Professor
Jessica Lu
to use gravitational microlensing to detect stellar mass black holes in the Milky Way.
I spent most of my first two years of graduate school writing a simulation
(PopSyCLE: Population Synthesis for Compact object Lensing Events)
to understand microlensing in the Milky Way and finding an optimal strategy
for selecting black hole candidates for astrometric follow up.
More recently I've been working on modeling and fitting photometric and astrometric microlensing events.
Before coming to Berkeley, I was an undergrad at MIT, where I graduated with
a bachelor's degree in math and physics (and also earned my
pirate's license).
A slightly longer biography can be found
here.
