I have been a Jayhawk since 2018 when joining KU as a freshman in the Aerospace Engineering program. After graduating I decided to further my education and begin a master's degree in aerospace engineering here at KU. My interests lie in rocket propulsion and orbital mechanics, and my research currently focuses on simulating aerobraking trajectories around Mars. I joined the GEA as I wanted to get more involved with my peers and engineering community while in graduate school. Outside of academics and engineering I enjoy playing and watching soccer!
