Hi there. I am a doctoral candidate in the Dept. of Physics & Astronomy at University of California, Irvine. My research seeks to constrain the birth and evolution of massive, dusty galaxies in the early Universe - you can read more about it here. Outside of research, I enjoy spoiling my dog + houseplants, reading sci-fi/fantasy fiction, and supporting the astronomy + STEM community.
There is no singular path to become a scientist. Everyone's journey and motivations are unique.
