About Me

In Koh Samui, Thailand

I am an Astronomy PhD Student at the University of California, Santa Cruz, where I am begining a PhD which will hopefully focus on Instrumentation and Galaxies.

I spent a year with doing research in Taiwan with a Fulbright Grant. There, I worked and studied at National Central University in 中壢 (Zhongli), Taiwan. I just graduated from Pomona College in Claremont, California. There, I was a Physics and Astronomy major and dabbled in linguistics, mathematics and computer science. I am also a decently avid journalist. I was the Editor-In-Chief for the Claremont College’s student newspaper, The Student Life for the fall semester 2009.
