I am a prize postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Florida. In 2014 I defended my PhD dissertation (“The Dynamics and Cold Gas Content of Luminous Infrared Galaxy Mergers in the Local Universe”) in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Virginia. I have previously been a:
- FONDECYT Postdoctoral Fellow (2014–2017), Departamento de Astronomía, Universidad de Concepción and the Instituto de Astrofísica, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
- Graduate student (research and teaching assistant; 2007–2014), Department of Astronomy, University of Virginia
- Visiting Graduate Student Fellow (Jan–Jul 2013), Infrared Processing and Analysis Center, California Institute of Technology
Beyond astronomy, I enjoy spending time in the outdoors. Depending on where I am that means skiing, hiking, cycling, mountaineering/climbing, or surfing. I often have a camera slung over my shoulder and sometimes I make videos.
