About me

I am a fifth year graduate student working with Elena D'Onghia at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

I run computational models of galaxies to understand how small galaxies grow, interact, and ultimately build larger systems like the Milky Way.

Much of my work focuses Magellanic spirals - galaxies that, like the Large Magellanic Cloud, have misplaced bars, single spiral arms, or irregular features.
