About me:
I am a graduate student currently working with Dr. Gary Ferland on high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy and various atomic processes occurring in the X-ray emitting plasma. I develop spectral diagnostic methods and tools for interpreting the spectra from next-generation microcalorimeter missions like XRISM and Athena. I also develop the spectral synthesis code Cloudy for meeting the spectroscopic challenges of these future missions.
