I'm a fourth-year PhD candidate in the Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Toronto (Advisors: Dr. Maria Drout & Dr. Jeremy Webb). I recieved my physics and astronomy Honours Bachelor of Science in 2020 at the University of British Columbia (Advisor: Dr. Harvey Richer).

My research combines observations, simulations and machine learning to study binary and star cluster evolution. Currently, I am observing binary systems in open star clusters to better resolve uncertainties in the common envelope phase of evolution. I am also the lead developer of Corespray, which is a Python-based software that quickly samples dynamical interactions in globular clusters.

In my free time, you can find me racing in marathons and triathlons, practicing film photography and adding to my ever-expanding vinyl record collection.
