Hi! I'm a 5th-year graduate student in Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Arizona, where I work with Dr. Feryal Özel.
My current research is focused on understanding the exotic nuclear physics that govern the interiors of neutron stars, using astrophysical observations. Recently, I've been particularly interested in how the dense-matter equation of state impacts gravitational waves emitted by neutron star mergers.
