Education: I am currently in the Applied Physics M.S. program at Johns Hopkins University. I graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2019 with a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.A. in Physics.
Research Interests: I am interested in magnetospheric physics, planetary geophysics, and mathematical physics.

I worked with Dr. Dhananjay Ravat at the University of Kentucky, using magnetometer data from Lunar Prospector to produce high resolution maps of the lunar swirl named Reiner Gamma (seen above). I created models of the crustal magnetic anomaly associated with this lunar swirl in an attempt to constrain the subsurface geometry of the source, which would have implications for the formation of the anomaly. I presented on this research at many conferences, all of which are listed in my CV.
Global Lunar Magnetics Map
While working on the lunar swirls project, I contributed to the refinement of Lunar Prospector data to produce a high resolution global map of magnetic anomalies on the lunar surface. I also worked on combining LP data with magnetometer data from the Kaguya spacecraft, which was ultimately unsuccessful due to imprecise orbital location data.
Global Martian Magnetics Map
Also during my time with Dr. Ravat, I was heavily involved in the processing of MAVEN magnetometer data to produce a global map of the Martian magnetosphere. I wrote several pieces of code that have since been used and adapted by other students of Dr. Ravat to refine and combine monthly downlinks of MAVEN data.
