Welcome to my webpage!

I'm a Senior Research Associate at the University of Colorado Boulder. My work focuses on implementing and studying mechanisms for improving undergraduate education in STEM departments, with a particular focus on organizational/institutional change, equity and inclusion, and community.

Before coming to CU, I earned a bachelor’s degree in physics from MIT and a Ph.D. in physics from UC Berkeley. As a member of the Whaley group at Berkeley, I studied ultracold atomic gases using quantum Monte Carlo simulation techniques with the Whaley group. While at Berkeley, I also co-founded the Berkeley Compass Project, a student-run organization that combines community and better pedagogy to support underrepresented students in physics. Compass was instrumental in my transition from traditional physics research to STEM education research.
