Having spent the majority of my childhood in rural Florida, one of my favorite activities was to go out stargazing at night. I never lost that childhood passion for astronomy, and after receiving my bachelor’s degree in Astrophysics from Columbia University, I am currently a 5th year graduate student in the Astrophysical Sciences department, researching worlds beyond our own. In addition to my research, my outreach efforts include running public observing nights and teaching with the Prison Teaching Initiative. I hope to help improve the diversity and inclusion of Princeton and other academic communities in New Jersey at large.
