        I am a second-year graduate student in astronomy at Harvard University working with Dr Alexey Vikhlinin and Prof. Christopher W. Stubbs. I am analyzing data from the NASA Chandra X-ray observatory to understand how often galaxy clusters merge. I am also very interested in Galactic dynamics, and trying to dissect the formation of the Milky Way via the motions and elemental abundances of stars in the Milky Way.
