I am a sixth year graduate student and NSF graduate research fellow studying astrophysics at the University of Minnesota, working on wrapping up my dissertation. I graduated in the spring of 2014 from the University of Minnesota with bachelors of science degrees in Physics and Astrophysics. My research is in computational astrophysics, specifically modeling the interactions of AGN jets with the intracluster medium as a diagnostic measure to probe the dynamics of the ICM.
