I am a third year undergraduate a High Point University majoring in computational physics. My research has focused on pulsating hot subdwarf B stars (sdBs) or more specifically finding new pulsating pulsating sdBs from archival GALEX data and then getting fedup with than and training neural networks to find pulsating sdBs for me. Aside from these sdB escapades, I have also worked on projects extracting radial velocity measurements from high resolution echelle spectra.
As much I enjoy astrophysics, I do also enjoy taking breaks from work. In my free time I have been known to work/volunteer at Encore Stage & Studio, where I enjoy carpentry and general theater tech work. Additionally I am of the Star Trek inclinations, spending what some might say is far too much time enthralled in the exploits of the enterprise crew.
