Williams College, B.A. in Astrophysics and Concentration in Science and Technology Studies

Short biographical information. I grew up in Dallas, TX and did not spent much time up north until I went to college - these winters! But after 4 years, I have learned when to wear my entire closet and how to calculate how fast I need to run between buildings relative to how cold it is outside. I've done research in both math and solar physics (the 2017 eclipse was amazing!) and enjoy talking about both projects. My family in Dallas has a dog named Leah and a cat named Joe and they are both adorable - I hope to own my own dog up here at Dublin sometime soon. I have a younger sister who is attending college relatively nearby, and we visit each other as often as we can.

What book has made you think the most? Physics of the Impossible by Michio Kaku

What is your favorite course you have taken in high school or college? My favorite course that I took in college was called Automatic Culture with Ezra Feldman. We talked about the history of automation and how automation has impacted society over time, sometimes in non-intuitive ways. I really enjoyed the readings and how welcoming class discussion was.

What is your favorite place on campus and why? The Recital Hall - whether it's faculty training or a morning meeting, the recital hall has come to be the place I associate with people coming together. The conversations and interactions I've been able to have with people in the recital hall have been some of my favorite experiences at Dublin so far.

If I had a free afternoon I would... read whatever I was currently reading on a comfy chair/couch.

What is your favorite outdoor activity? Walking or sitting on a porch and talking to people.
