I’m a rising senior physics major at Wellesley College, with a minor in Philosophy. I am interested in scientific computing as it relates to astrophysics, geophysics, and the environmental sciences. My aim is to do research in computational physics, particularly in the fields of relativity, particle physics, and quantum mechanics. I am also interested in continuing the work I have done in simulating the effects of climate change on earth’s systems. I am passionate about science communication, addressing environmental injustice, and changing paradigms of science. In my free time, I like baking, knitting, playing instruments, and learning languages.
