Academic Appointments

PhD Student in Physics and Astronomy

I currently work with Professor Jedidah Isler to explore the broadband, multiwavelength behavior of quiescent and flaring blazars with an emphasis on monitoring studies in optical photometry and spectropolarimetry. Our group is particularly interested in the interplay of the thermal and non-thermal components of the blazar jet system, and specifically how the non-thermal emission is distributed around and interacts with the jet itself.

Other interests of mine include traveling, cooking, spending time with friends, being active at the gym or outdoors, reading, drawing, painting or creating pottery, and spending time with my two cats Jacques and Margot.
