Professional Bio

Bachelors (2009) and Masters (2010) in physics at BYU, research focused on black holes in higher dimensions.
PhD (2016) from the University of Maryland in 2016 in elementary particle theory.
Worked as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California, at Davis from 2016-2019 and at Irvine from 2019-2021.
My doctoral and postdoctoral research has focused on understanding the structure of Universe's most fundamental dynamics. I build models that address questions about the Universe and determine how these models can be tested experimentally.
