I am a Astrophysics PhD student working, with Prof. Peter Nugent, on image analysis, statistics, and target selection for the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI). Although my PhD thesis is in cosmology, my enjoyment of solving computationally demanding problems has lead me to do research in various fields, including star formation and planetary science. I have also learned a ton from coding projects, outside of academia, and these skills have substantially improved my PhD work.
