Center for Astrophysics
SAO Predoctoral Fellow


I am a Ph.D. candidate at Boston University, and I have been doing my dissertation research at the CfA as an SAO Predoctoral Fellow working with Dr. Paul Green. I study dwarf carbon stars using data from photometric and spectroscopic surveys and the Chandra X-ray telescope. I also study all types of variable stars (e.g., RR Lyr, eclipsing binaries) using photometric surveys and optical spectra from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.
