I am a PhD student studying the origins of life. I’m currently affiliated with The Beyond Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science and the Department of Physics at Arizona State University. I am completing my dissertation studying computational models of chemical evolution under the supervision of Professor Sara Imari Walker.

I am a physicist by training. I received a BSc in Physics with a minor in Mathematics from San Francisco State University in 2013. However I’ve always had an interest in interdisciplinary questions. In my research I take a post-disciplinary approach to the origins of life by bringing theoretical tools Complex Systems Science to bear on problems in Astrobiology.
