I study planets and history.
I'm an undergraduate at MIT studying planetary science and astronomy, computer science, and history. I am pursuing a research career in planetary science, and I also care about teaching and outreach, diversity in academia, and social justice.
I am majoring in Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences with a concentration in Planetary Science & Astronomy. I'm interested in exoplanet detection and characterization, and in small bodies in the Solar System.
I am also pursuing a joint major in Computer Science and History. I am interested in 20th century Middle Eastern history and the intersections of race, science, and technology.
I am a campus leader and member of several organizations, including:
In my free time, I'm a constant listener of podcasts, and once changed my course schedule so that I could see a Wait Wait Don't Tell Me live show (don't tell). I can also be found playing the piano and occasionally other instruments, sampling Boston's various pho vendors, hiking in the gorgeous hills of New England, and making TRAPPIST-1-inspired Christmas ornaments.
