I am a software engineer dedicated to supporting and accelerating scientific research. I am currently working at CliMA, the Climate Modelling Alliance, where I contribute to the development of a next-generation Earth-System Model.
Before joining CliMA, I obtained my PhD in theoretical and computational physics focusing on simulations of black holes. During my PhD, I was a NASA Future Investigator for Space Science and a Texas Advanced Center for Computing Frontera fellow. As part of my PhD, I contributed to the development of open-source software for high-energy astrophysics. I also contributed to packages for GNU Emacs. I am a reviewer for the Journal of Open-Source Software.
I am passionate about open-source software in science, research software engineering, and education.
