At the University of Virginia Department of Astronomy, I study star formation in the hearts of cool-core galaxy clusters with my advisor Bob O'Connell. I use the Spitzer Space Telescope's Infrared Spectrograph. I obtained my Ph.D. in the summer of 2011.

While in Charlottesville, I became increasingly interested in using astronomy to create bridges between the scientific community and the public. You can now find me at the Public Observatory of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
