My research interests are in ion particle acceleration and transport. I am particularly interested in energetic particle entrance and effect on both the terrestrial and gas giant magnetospheres. I also am interested in developing next-generation particle instruments that can be miniaturized for use on CubeSats while still providing top-of-the-line mass and energy resolution.
In my personal time I enjoy playing with my 2 large dogs, spending time outdoors, baking, and reading.
Please contact me for further information about my research or interest in collaboration.

Dissertation project studying the heavy ion composition in stream interaction regions in solar cycle 23 and 24
Using data from Van Allen Probes, GOES, MMS, ACE, and particle tracing models I am studying the cutoff rigidities of solar energetic particles.
