I’m a first year graduate student in the Department of Astronomy at The Ohio State University and am currently working with Kris Stanek and Chris Kochanek on the All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae (ASAS-SN), a multi-telescope project which aims to survey the entire sky down to 17th magnitude every night in order to detect astronomical transients. This work builds nicely off of my undergraduate research under Eddie Baron at the University of Oklahoma, where I used the radiative transfer codes SYNOW and PHOENIX to model the spectra of a variety of astrophysical explosions.
