Astronomy & Science Education

From 2012 to 2016, I was a research assistant at the Astrophysics department at the American Museum of Natural History. There, I investigated the atmospheric properties of brown dwarfs, as part of the BDNYC research group led by Dr. Emily Rice, Dr. Kelle Cruz and Dr. Jackie Faherty. I also had the opportunity to present at international conferences, remotely and directly operating telescopes around the world, and become a co-author on published, peer-reviewed research. Currently, I work as a freelance science educator on a National Geographic-funded project that aims to instill ocean stewardship through a 360 underwater film.
