After finishing high school, I attended Columbia University where I completed a BA with a major in physics and a minor in mathematics. While there I became very interested in the fields of particle physics and astrophysics. Upon graduating from college, I immediately left for Cambridge, Mass. to begin the physics PhD program at MIT. I finished a PhD working under Peter Fisher on a small dark matter detector R&D project. This was an ideal project since it combined both subfields that I was most interested in and also involved a mixture of many types of work: hardware, data reconstruction, analysis, etc. After completing a PhD I moved to Boulder to work at the University of Colorado on several projects in neutrino physics.
Outside physics, spend much of my time running, playing music, and reading. I also enjoy hiking, biking, and swimming whenever I get a chance.
