I am a National Science Foundation (NSF) Astronomy & Astrophysics and UC Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow at UC San Diego. I was a NASA Einstein and ITC Post-doctoral Fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in physics and astrophysics at UC Berkeley and my Ph.D. in astrophysics at UC Santa Cruz. My research interests are in theoretical and computational astrophysics with an emphasis on star formation. I use numerical simulations to study the formation of massive stars and massive star clusters. I am particularly interested in how stellar feedback — the injection of energy and momentum by young stars — shapes the interstellar medium and galaxies.
