I am a physicist at the Flatiron Institute’s Center for Computational Astrophysics. I am interested in transport processes, how matter and energy and other conserved quantities move in physical systems.

I spend most of my attention on transport in stars and planets, but am also interested in transport in condensed matter systems (electron hydrodynamics, phonon transport, etc.).

I hold a BS in Physics from Caltech (2015) and a PhD in Astronomy from the University of Cambridge (2018). I was previously a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UCSB (2018-19).

I sometimes write thoughts I have on space exploration, workflows, agency, mental health, and more here. If you’d like to receive updates you can either use RSS or get posts by email by subscribing here.


In my spare time I like to write science fiction short stories. You can find some of my stories on Github and in the Cambridge University Science Fiction Society magazine [1,2].
