Welcome!

Purpose

Welcome to my personal website. Check back again soon as I continue to refine and update the early stages of this site. I will be adding more information about my current research, activities, and employment soon.

This site is intended to provide some additional information on my interests, skills, background, and hobbies. Visit the photography page to see some of the photos I've taken over the past couple of years. Alternatively, open the projects tab to learn more about what I've been working on.


Biography

I am currently an undergraduate student at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, VA (Class of 2022). I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Physics and a Mathematics Minor. Although I am still unsure of what field I would like to specialize in, I am quite interested in Aerospace Engineering and Astrophysics.

Current Work

Hobbies

My most recent projects have all involved experimenting with computing. In high school, I constructed two computers and installed macOS on one of these non-native devices. More recently, I have digitized my personal movie collection and created a fully functioning, remotely accessible movie server. Currently, I'm experimenting with several Linux distributions on a Raspberry Pi to learn more about Linux based systems.


Network Research

I am currently performing network research with Professor Irina Mazilu and fellow students Anthony Lorson and Robert Hageboeck for Washington and Lee University's Physics department. We are analyzing research papers published by W&L professors to model their co-authorship among one another as a physical network. We hope to determine Washington and Lee's clustering coefficient and the average degrees of separation among professors. We would like to extend our research to other similar sized institutions to evaluate how these factors affect professor's collaboration and publications.
