Welcome to my homepage. I'm a scientist with an interest in nuclear astrophysics and extreme-scale computing. In short, I use some of the world's most powerful supercomputers to study some of the Universe's most powerful explosions.
Currently, I'm a research assistant and iACS Jr. Researcher Fellow at Stony Brook University. I work in the astronomy group under the advisement of Prof. Michael Zingale. I will be graduating with a physics PhD this summer and heading off to Michigan State University to start a position as a postdoctoral fellow in theoretical nuclear astrophysics at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics - Center for the Evolution of the Elements. I will be working with Prof. Ed Brown and Prof. Hendrik Shatz.
I come to Stony Brook by way of a dual degree in physics and computer science from Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas. I was born and raised in Arkansas, growing up in the town of Benton.
