I'm a fourth-year graduate student at the UCSC Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics. I work with Stan Woosley on developing simulations using radiation transport codes in order to characterize shock breakout in supernovae, particularly from low-energy explosions. I also work on understanding new transients from very low energy and failed supernovae. In the past I have also worked with Stefano Profumo and Tim Linden on gamma ray signals from the Galactic Center, and with Rob Simcoe at MIT on cold gas haloes around high-redshift galaxies.
