I am a graduate student in the Lattice & Effective Field Theory group at Duke University in Durham, NC. My thesis advisor is Prof. Thomas Mehen, who studies effective field theories for hadronic physics. I am currently utilizing heavy quark effective theory (HQET) and non-relativistic quantum chromodynamics (NRQCD) to better understand the physics of hadrons with heavy quarks.

I graduated with a degree in physics from Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, GA in May 2018. My undergraduate research, directed by Dr. Maxim Durach, focused on Mie scattering by metamaterial microspheres.
