    Research Interests: My research interests mainly include some funadamental aspects of the universe such as dark matter, black holes, Big Bang cosmology, etc. I do however enjoy working with cosmochemistry, mainly in the study of presolar grains as stardust is what inspired me to pursue a career in astrophysics.

    Research Interests: I’m a fourth year undergraduate at Rutgers, majoring in physics and philosophy. In my research, we compare isotope production in astrophysical sites to isotopic compositions of meteorite samples. This helps us identify different astrophysical events as potential sources for the chemical enrichment of our solar system. We are particularly interested in Neutron-Rich Low-Entropy matter Ejectors (NRLEEs) such as type 1a supernovae. I use a combination of theoretical computation and experimental data analysis in my work.
