I am a YCAA Prize Postdoctoral Fellow at the Yale Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics (YCAA), at Yale University in New Haven, CT, USA. In 2017 I graduated with a Ph.D. from California Institute of Technology (Pasadena, CA, USA). I was an International Fulbright Science and Technology Fellow for the first three years of graduate school, and a NASA Earth and Space Science Fellow for the following three years. Between 2017 and 2020 I was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University's Black Hole Initiative and the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian in Cambridge, MA, USA.

My research is focused on observations, data analysis, and theoretical modeling of active galactic nuclei. Using X-ray spectroscopy, as well as observations at other wavelengths, I am trying to better understand the structures surrounding supermassive black holes. I am a member of several international collaborations, including the NuSTAR AGN Science Team, BAT AGN Spectroscopic Survey (BASS), Accretion History of AGN (AHA), and the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT). Within the EHT collaboration I work on coordinated multi-wavelength observations and I also served as the coordinator for public communications for three years, covering the globally coordinated announcement of the first resolved image of a black hole in the galaxy M87 in April 2019.
