Fellowship status:
Starting year: 2013
Research Interests:

My research focus is connecting star formation in the Milky Way to that in external galaxies.

Education and Outreach Interests:

My education and outreach program goals are to mentor students from diverse backgrounds that are interested in STEM fields to encourage them to pursue higher degrees (bachelors and beyond) at a 4-year College or University. This program allows students to gain professional development, leadership, and research skills they require to succeed in STEM fields.
