Hello! I am a graduate student at Harvard’s Center for Astrophysics, interested in cosmology and science communication. I just released an M dwarf multiplicity survey - searching for binary systems of small, cool stars using Robo-AO. Now I'm part of the DESI collaboration, a group working on a large, spectroscopic survey of galaxies to study the effects of dark energy on our universe. As someone with a passion for teaching and public speaking, I am always looking for outreach opportunities.
