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 got to share wine & cheese with Neil deGrasse Tyson every now and then, which was both absurd and illuminating. Currently, I work both as a freelance science educator as well as part of an NSF-funded project to adapt engineering curriculum for kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in NYC public middle schools.
