I am currently a second-year graduate student at the Minnesota Institute for Astronomy. I completed my undergraduate studies at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin, earning a B.A. in Physics in 2006. In the summer of 2005, I worked under Harald Ebeling at the Institute for Astronomy in Manoa, at the University of Hawaii, studying X-Ray images of massive galaxy clusters at high redshift as part of the NSF REU program.
After earning my B.A., but before becoming a full-time graduate student, I studied Astronomy on a part-time basis at the University of Minnesota while working as a Laboratory Technician at 3M in St. Paul, MN. Most recently, I was employed as a part of the 3M Optical Systems Division, optimizing flat screen television displays.
My website is currently under construction. Please check back for updates.
