I am currently a second year graduate student in theoretical physics at Duke University. My research focuses on studying phenomenology in Quantum Chromodynamics and using "effective" field theories to study how bound states of quarks called "quarkonium" are produced at the Large Hadron Collider. I got my BS in physics and math at the University of South Carolina where I worked on high energy physics research with the ATLAS project. There I started Carolina Science Outreach, an organization that gives fun and interactive science presentations to K-12 students across South Carolina. I am interested in science communication of all forms including science writing, vlogs, K-12 classroom visits, and podcasts.
