Hi there! I study the small ancient galaxies that orbit the Milky Way. I'm interested in the chemical compositions of stars in these galaxies because they hold clues to how the first stars exploded, and how the first galaxies formed. I use high-resolution spectroscopy for my research, and this led me to an internship at Gemini South, working on the new optical GHOST spectrograph, where I test the data reduction pipeline. I will be finishing my masters in late spring 2023, and moving on to whatever next big adventure life has in store for me!
