About

I’m grad student in Philadelphia. Most of my time is spent completing the research needed to get my PhD. The rest of the time is spent avoiding that research.

I’ve got a B.S. in Applied Physics, with a concentration in Acoustics, and a minor in Applied & Computational Mathematics. I also graduated from high school. That was a long time ago.

I’ve worked as both a Teaching Assistant and a Research Assistant as part of my graduate studies. During my undergrad I worked as a co-op at an automobile HVAC manufacturer. I worked mostly in the NVH Lab assisting with acoustic testing, but also spent time in the Prototype Lab and Thermal lab. I have also worked as a delivery driver and a bar back at a comedy club.

Other interests include reading, following the Detroit Lions, and listening to hip hop. The hip hop I listen to is also Detroit-centric. As far as reading goes, my favorite book of all time is Catch-22. Other notable books/authors include Vonnegut, Feynman, Poe, Steinbeck, Doyle, Nietzsche, Orwell, Verne, and Douglas Adams.

Besides physics, I enjoy keeping up with many fields of science, including biology, nanotechnology, computer science, neuroscience, and chemistry. I believe in defending climate science, vaccines and modern medicine, evolution, and science and knowing things in general.
