Background and Current Role

Where I was and where I am now...

My formal education and professional career are focused in the subject of Astronomy. In 2021, I graduated with a B.S. in Astronomy and Physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
I currently work as a Systems Engineer at the Space Telescope Science Institute supporting the James Webb Space Telescope mission.

I was involved in a few research projects while at UW-Madison focused on high-redshift galaxy evolution. I became passionate about science education and astrophotography along the way. I continue studying the cosmos in my professional career.
