During the summer of 2016 I conducted research on gravitational lensing of black holes under the guidance of professor Henric Krawczynski at WashU at St. Louis and wrote a paper featured in UChicago's undergraduate research magazine. In the summer of 2017 I participated in research regarding ultra-faint dwarf galaxies (HERON project) with professor R. Michael Rich at UCLA alongside two foreign exchange students from Nanjing University.
I am passionate about STEM and spent 40+ hours volunteering with an After-School Science Program at an elementary/middle school (in Chicago) where we held small physics/biology/chemistry/engineering experiments with kids from ages 5-14. I always enjoy helping people solve problems that have been giving them trouble before.
I am seeking a position where I can utilize the analytical skills I developed while pursuing my physics degree for a company with innovative and sustainable technology.
Math/Science Tutor and SAT/ACT Test preparation for schools and families
Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Environmental Science, Mathematics (algebra - calculus)
Conducted research on ultra-faint dwarf galaxies and combed through galactic databases to catalog available candidates for closer observation (HERON Project).
Conducted research on gravitational microlensing statistics under guidance of professor Henric Krawczynski by expanding an inverse ray shooting code he originally developed. This research was concluded with a report I wrote that was featured in the University of Chicago's undergraduate research magazine, Scientia.
