My research focuses on understanding how stars form. My work mainly involves performing gravito-radiation-hydrodynamic simulations of the turbulent natal environment of stars.  I am also interested in connecting theory and observation using synthetic observations. Before joining the faculty at UMass Amherst, I was a Hubble Postdoc Fellow at Yale and an NSF Postdoc Fellow at Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
