Astrophysicist & Photographer
I am currently a masters student at Leiden University studying Astronomy and Data Science. I graduated with my BSc in Physics and Computer Science from the University of Oregon, and I am interested in being a researcher in industry.
I research galaxies, especially high redshift ones, to discover how our Universe came to be. I also apply machine learning to astronomy to explore its applications. In my free time, I hike, ski, and shoot landscape and night sky photography around the world.
I use my interest in computing and interdisciplinary research to study massive sets of data and produce insights in various contexts, including astronomy and biology.
My research interests are focused on interdisciplinary research, especially in astronomy, but also biology and computer science. I've done research at NASA on hyperspectral data and productionized machine learning algorithms for Google's Gsuite. Some of my current and past research is shown below. My CV is available here, and ADS here
My photography is primarily based around landscapes, the night sky and pushing the technical limits of the camera and computing while creating gigapixel images.
