Education

Scientific Achievements

  • White House Science Fair (April 2016)
  • WiSys Quick Pitch People's Choice
    • Investigating Optimal Mirror Orbits for Darkside Illumination (2018)
      • Faculty advisor is Dr. Shauna Sallmen
      • See bellow under Astrophysics Research, now renamed "A Python Simulation:..."
    • Campus News Article
    • Communicating scientific ideas at an appropriate level for the audience is a passion of mine. Winning People's Choice is evidence of my capabilities to explain new, complex, astrophysics research to a nonspecialized audience. Knowledge is only useful if understood!
