My primary research interests are in astronomical instrumentation and galactic outflows driven by supernova feedback.
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Astronomy on the Astrophysics track from the University of Colorado - Boulder in May 2007 and received my Master's degree from UW - Madison in May 2010. My PhD research focuses on integral field spectroscopy, both through instrumentation and observations. I helped design and build the HexPak and GradPak integral field units, currently in use on the WIYN 3.5m telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory. My observational work focuses on measuring gas outflows in starburst galaxies. I also worked as an intern in the Detector Engineering department at Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. during the summers of 2013 and 2014.
