I am a first year PhD student in the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME). I graduated with a BS in physics with highest honors from UC Santa Cruz, where I developed search algorithms and used statistical methods to show the existence of ultra bright Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes using data from the Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager.
