I am a fourth year PhD candidate in the Astronomy & Planetary Science program at Northern Arizona University. I work in the Astrophysical Materials Lab with Dr. Jennifer Hanley (Lowell Observatory, NAU Dept. of Astronomy and Planetary Science) primarily focusing on the interactions of hydrocarbons and nitrogen at the surface of Titan's lakes. I was awarded the 2020 NASA FINESST Fellowship, which will allow me to continue my work on Titan's lakes until 2024.
I also have the honor of being part of the DraGNS (Dragonfly Gamma-ray Neutron Spectrometer) team, helping with determining the full potential of gamma-ray and neutron spectroscopy on a world enriched with hydrogen, carbon, and nitrogen. This instrument will be aboard the Dragonfly rotorcraft and will head for Titan in 2027.
When I am not on Titan, I enjoy making art, cooking, bouldering, and exploring the southwest.
