My research: I perform research with HaloSat, a CubeSat that observes in the soft X-ray band. Last year, I used data from HaloSat to perform an investigation into the global X-ray properties of the Vela and Puppis A supernova remnants. Currently, I am using HaloSat data to investigate an X-ray anomaly that could be a secondary product of a decaying dark matter particle. This project was also the basis of my work this past summer as a (virtual) intern in the X-ray Astrophysics Laboratory at NASA/GSFC.
Fun stuff: In my free time, I enjoy traveling, playing flute, hiking, and stress-baking very colorful cakes.
