I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student and NSF Graduate Research Fellow working with Manoj Kaplinghat and the astroparticle group here in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of California, Irvine. I completed my undergraduate degrees in Physics and Astronomy at the Ohio State University.
My research focuses on using astrophysical and cosmological observations to probe the particle nature of dark matter. Outside of my research activities, I also enjoy helping students of all ages get excited about physics and the Universe through participation in educational outreach programs. I am also an active member on the Organizing Committees for the UCI Women in Physics and the Physics Graduate Caucus.
