I started my Physics major in my Sophomore year and got involved in the Undergraduate Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA Team (ALFALFA) project in the winter of Junior year, an astronomy consortium involving colleges all across the United States. I did research for ALFALFA determining the optical characteristics of galaxies that lead to good radio detections, as well as observing at the 300-meter wide, single-dish Arecibo telescope in Puerto Rico. I am also a math major, and plan on working at the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia after I graduate.
