Currently, I am a PhD Candidate in Physics with TAPIR at the California Institute of Technology working on both computational and theoretical gravitational physics advised by Saul Teukolsky. While I am interested in a maelstrom of topics, my primary research is concerned with using numerical relativity to study a unique and mind-wrenching phenomenon: gravitational memory.

I carry out this work using a Cauchy-Characteristic Extraction algorithm (CCE) as a part of our Spectral Einstein Code (SpEC) belonging to the Simulating eXtreme Spacetimes (SXS) Collaboration.

Apart from my passion for mathematics and physics, I am an avid backpacker/hiker and am doing my best to enjoy the temperate West Coast, despite my origins in the chilly Midwest.
