Who I am: I am a 3rd year (junior) physics and computer science double-major at UVa. I hope to continue on in physics and ultimately to fulfill my longtime ambition of teaching physics as a professor. While taking classes, I enjoy my job as a TA, and in my free time I play the violin and various pc games.
Research: WimpSim is a software package that simulates WIMP annihilation in the Sun and the resulting neutrino interactions on a detector on Earth. My primary project this summer has been to integrate WimpSim with the existing NOvA simulation packages.
