My background is in astrophysics with a focus on the observational study of young stars and their properties. I am interested in how the properties of the youngest stars change as they grow and how these properties affect dusty planet forming material associated with the stars. As I learned how to conduct this research I earned a B.S. in Physics and Astronomy, and later, a Ph.D. in Physics and Astronomy. Along the way I have had the opportunity to lead problem sessions and laboratories for college physics and astronomy classes. I have also tutored a number of high school and college students in physics and related classes. I am excited to be here on Varsity Tutors tutoring Physics and Astronomy.
