Graduate Student
Liberal Arts & Sciences


I am currently a first-year grad student going for my PhD in Astrophysics. I work under the direction of Assistant Professor Dr. Mike Line on computational modeling of the atmospheres of terrestrial-mass exoplanets.

I am from Fort Mill, SC which is just south of Charlotte, NC. I attended Clemson University (Go Tigers!) for my undergrad in Physics and I graduated in May of 2017. While there I was active in the Society of Physics Student and served as Treasurer my Junior year and President my Senior year. I was breifly a member of the Clemson Skydiving Club and Co-Founder of STRIPES, an organization that promoted the proliferation of knowledge regarding current scientific research to non-STEM students and the general public. 

I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, climbing, camping, kayaking, etc... I am definitely a foodie and enjoy cooking and am always interested to try out new recipies. I also really love to travel and hope to someday take an extended backpacking trip though much of Europe and Northen Africa.


B.S. in Physics from Clemson University 2017

Research Interests

My research interests include computational astrophysics as it pertains to modeling and analyzing the factors that contribute to the habitability of a planet. My current research focuses on the building of atmospheric models for terrestrial-mass exoplanets and then preforming retrievals. In the future, I hope to become more well-versed in the several other habitability factors.
