I am currently a data science fellow at Insight Data Science, NYC.
I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Notre Dame, studying experimental nuclear astrophysics within the Nuclear Science Laboratory. My work focused on commissioning the St. George recoil separator and performing the first scientific campaign with the system. I contributed to the design verification of the SECAR recoil separator, which is currently being installed at the NSCL/FRIB at Michigan State University.
I have been using Python for ten years for everything from building out analysis frameworks (PyNE) to capturing and analyzing curling results (WCF), and taught the Python for Physicists summer course as part of Notre Dame Physics' REU program (raw files).
In my free time, I am a somewhat competitive curler (I competed in the 2017 Arena National Championship), and walking around the city with my wife and Corgi puppy.
