I am a graduate student at the IfA specializing in extragalactic astronomy. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Astrophysics with a minor in Mathematics from the College of Charleston in South Carolina. In my undergraduate career I worked on numerous projects related to gravitationally lensed quasars. More recently, I developed a new gravitational lens-modeling code to characterize newly discovered massive galaxy clusters. Currently I am a member of the Hawaii Two-0 team, an effort at the IfA to obtain the largest sample of galaxies with stellar mass estimates beyond z = 3. I am working with Dr. David Sanders to identify high-redshift galaxies and model their spectral energy distributions.
