I have always wondered how exactly the world works. This interest was the main reason why I chose to study physics. When I was accepted into the Accelerated BS/PhD Program, I received an excellent chance to do research early in my undergraduate career. The accelerated program was great because the first year I was able to rotate through different research groups in different fields of physics and then pick the subject I liked best.
I am now a part of Professor Wayne Roberge’s research group. Our group mainly studies Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and shock waves in star forming clouds. My personal research has mainly been focused on MHD multifluid shear flows and their effects on primitive bodies in protoplanetary disks.
Aside from academics, I also enjoy many activities here at RPI. I am vice president of roller hockey club and have played intramural ice and floor hockey. I also enjoy skiing in the winter and playing golf.
