I completed my undergraduate degree at Colgate University (2011) where I studied Astronomy-Physics and Computer Science. I also ran from the Men's Cross Country and Track and Field teams as a long distance runner.

For my graduate degree, I studied at Cornell University (2016). Besides academic work, I was a member of the Astronomy Grads Network, the Cornell Running Club, the Cornell Track and Field Club, and the High Noon Athletic Club.

Now I am currently working at West Virginia University. I have the best beagle ever, Capella, who is the unofficial mascot of the Department of Physics and Astronomy here at the university.
