I am currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Computational, Mathematics, Science, and Engineering at Michigan State University. I am a research assistant in Dr. Michael S. Murillo’s laboratoryfocusing on computational plasma physics. Additionally, I am a year-round intern at Sandia National Laboratory in the high-energy-density physics theory organization.
Before coming to Michigan State university, I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degree in applied mathematics from The University of Akron in Akron, Ohio, which is also my hometown.
Some of my interests include: cooking, coffee, Cleveland Indians baseball, and camping/hiking. I also have a passion for teaching and helping students. I have taught many classes both at The University of Akron and MSU.
