I grew up in NYC and call Boston my home. I'm working on my PhD in the Physics & Astronomy department, where I'm doing interdisciplinary research on quasar clustering with Dr. Adam Myers, and on how people learn to work with databases in astronomy with Dr. Andrea Burrows. I am also on leave of absence as faculty at a community college in Massachusetts.
In my free time (hah!) I play casual video games, listen to sci-fi/fantasy audiobooks, knit, play with my pet bird, and most years I participate in the MIT Mystery Hunt, a team puzzle-solving competition.
