About Me

I am currently a graduate student at the University of California, Merced. My research interests are the studies of Galactic Dynamics and Archeology, Star Clusters, Machine Learning, Milky Way Simulations.

My earlier research projects were on Space Science and I am also a science education and outreach enthusiast.
