I'm a PhD student in the Stanford University Department of Applied Physics, and I do plasma physics research as a member of the High Energy Density Science Division at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. My work specifically focuses on generating laser-driven ion and neutron beams using ambient-temperature and cryogenic liquid jet targets and using these beams to better understand the properties of plasmas that occur in extreme conditions.
I am advised by Siegfried Glenzer and supported by a DOE NNSA Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship. I was previously supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I did my undergraduate work at The University of Texas at Austin, where I received a BS in physics as a member of the Dean's Scholars Honors Program and a BA in Plan II Honors. My previous research was conducted at the Texas Petawatt Laser under the mentorship of Todd Ditmire.
