Recent graduate of Occidental College with a Bachelor of Arts with Distinction in Physics and a minor in Mathematics, magna cum laude, possessing an aptitude for learning, achieving, and teaching.

I have developed through my education and research experience a diverse set of skills which span physics, mathematics, and computer science, as well as laboratory techniques and methods. These exposures have granted me considerable practice synthesizing data, applying mathematical models to physical applications, exploring unexpected results by virtue of substrative theory, and expanding my creativity in solving problems. Along the way, I have tutored many classmates, peers, and neighbors in a variety of subjects. Through my liberal arts education, and tutoring experience, I have gained a broad perspective and learned to clearly communicate my knowledge with students of all disciplines and ages.

I recently completed an internship doing research at the Planetary Science Division of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, reducing and analyzing data from Jupiter's atmosphere in the infrared and providing valuable input to the Juno Mission. I also performed independent research for DRIFT, an international collaboration seeking to detect dark matter particles considering their directional signature.

I am currently seeking tutoring opportunities to which I can apply my ingenuity, enthusiasm, and experience.
