Hi! I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy (CASA) at the University of Colorado Boulder and a recently-minted PhD at UNC Chapel Hill on the science team of Evryscope, a UNC project led by Dr. Nicholas Law (PI). You can check out my Research, Teaching, Curriculum Vitae, or About pages here!
I currently lead the EvryFlare Survey collaboration, which investigates the habitability of rocky planets orbiting nearby flare stars. The survey has detected over 500 large stellar flares from hundreds of nearby K and M dwarf stars, including a superflare from Proxima Centauri. I am Principle Investigator of the NASA TESS Guest Investigator Programs 3174, “Multi-Wavelength Superflares And Planetary Habitability” and 4132, “Probing Impulsive Events In Huge Flares At High Cadence.” My publications are available on ADS, here.
