I entered the MSU physics graduate program in the Fall of 2011 and am pursuing a PhD with research in solar physics. As a Newkirk Fellow I am working on the topic of solar-stellar connections and using Sun-like stars to learn more about the solar dynamo.

I received my B.S. in physics in 2003 from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities followed by seven years of software development work for the Compact Muon Solenoid project at CERN. After leaving CERN in 2010 I worked briefly at the Observatório Nacional in Rio de Janeiro before coming to Montana to resume my studies.
