Research Interests

Formally trained as a high-energy astrophysicist, my research focused on the source distribution, propagation, and detection of the highest energy charged particles originating from space, commonly referred to as the ultra high energy cosmic rays. My persuit to elucidate the relationship between these highly researched topics in high energy astrophysics has relied on the use of Monte Carlo simulations and analysis of data acquired at the Pierre Auger Observatory. Currently, I use spectral observations in the mid-IR region of asteroids along with thermal modeling and machine learning techniques towards the construction an asteroid taxonomy.
