Georgia State University  

I'm an assistant professor in Physics and Astronomy at Georgia State University. My research is in the field of Computational Astrophysics and my interest is in the turbulent dynamics of astrophysical plasmas (for example in the interstellar medium) and the convection dynamics of stellar interiors. I use magnetohydrodynamic and fluid closures to understand how fundamental plasma physics like turbulence, magnetic instabilities, convection, and the dynamo contribute to stellar evolution, space weather, and cosmic ray diffusion.

I am a member of the Georgia AstroInformatics Nexus (GAIN).
