I am a postdoctoral research fellow at Carnegie Observatories and the University of Southern California.
My research aims to reveal the nature of the dark matter particle by combining cosmological simulations, theory, and observations of the smallest cosmic structures including ultra-faint dwarf galaxies.
Building an inclusive scientific community through mentorship and community service is important to me; these experiences are described here.
I am an active member of the Dark Energy Survey, Dark Energy Science Collaboration, and Satellites Around Galactic Analogs Survey.

In 2021, I received my Ph.D. in Physics from Stanford University, where I was an NSF Graduate Research Fellow in the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology advised by Risa Wechsler.
In 2016, I received my B.S. in Physics from the University of California, Santa Barbara in the College of Creative Studies.
I am passionate about interdisciplinary science, having participated in the Complex Systems Summer School hosted at the Santa Fe Institute, where I co-founded the research collective comp-syn.
I grew up in Santa Rosa, California and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Some of my hobbies are described here.
