My research focuses on understanding the formation of stars in our Milky Way galaxy and other galaxies. I approach these problems using a mixture of analytical and numerical techniques. Additionally, I enjoy thinking about college level pedagogy, the instruction of introductory STEM courses, the professional development of higher education faculty, and general science communication.
