Bio

I am an undergraduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in physics and computer science. In addition to schoolwork, I conduct research for the HAWC project and tutor with the PLC (Physics Learning Center). In the past I worked at Quad/Graphics as a software development intern.


Past work

Optimization of Trajectories through Dynamical Gravitational Systems

This is a link to a project I worked on for CS524-Intro to Optimization. Our end goal was to optimize certain aspects of a journey through the inner solar system using an ion thruster subject to various constraints detailed in the final Python notebook. My partner and I successfully found such a journey and interpret the results in the conclusion.
