    Relevant Experience

    Student Research Assistant at Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy (May 2015-May 2016) 

    Operated state of the art vacuum chambers as a means to test new shell optics technology for X-ray observations. Recorded and analyzed data from optics test to find optimal grating pattern and angle for best resolution. General upkeep and maintenance of vacuum chambers to prevent costly fixes to the high vacuum pump. Skillfully precision cleaned and stored rocket hardware in the ultra-clean lab where a small mistake could contaminate and ruin millions of dollars’ worth of rocket hardware. Machined and soldered hardware for telescope flight and CCD camera testing. Created and implemented Python scripting to reduce and analyze data which has been used by the Colorado High Resolution Echelle Stellar Spectrogram group to save weeks’ worth of manual image reduction—and will be put up on open source to save other groups the task of manual reduction and analysis.  

    Student Research Assistant at Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy

    Undergraduate Research Opportunity team grant, (May 2013-Aug.2014) Single grant, (Aug. 2014 – December 2014)

    Led a team of undergraduates to perform the image reduction tasks using an astronomical tool kit—IRAF—built out of Python. Team lead was responsible for data distribution and finding a streamlined process to optimize the reduction chain. Learned and utilized strict image analysis techniques to produce the best possible CCD image for scientific analysis. Selected for the rare opportunity to fly out to Kitt Peak’s National Observatory to learn about and operate the WIYN 0.9 Meter telescope in an effort that saved several thousand dollars on professional observers.

    Student Research Assistant at Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy

    Undergraduate Research Opportunity single grant, (January 2013 – May 2013)

    Aligned and analyzed CCD images taken of the Orion star forming region using IRAF. Coded and stitched together images to form a mosaic of the whole region. This mosaic was used to find anomalies and newly forming stars for solar system research. This project not only created a more concrete map of the Orion region, but saved researchers around the world the time to create this map and the money spent on observations.

    Additional Experience

    Undergraduate office assistant III

    Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences, (August 2013-May 2015)

    Acted as the liaison for community relations and department outreach. Kept organized records on department faculty and staff, managing the IT team for the department, and performing donor outreach. Also organized events for students such as departmental graduation, graduate student appreciation lunches, and prospective student breakfasts.
