We restarted the CfA Machine Learning Journal Club this semester with a wonderful group of organizers: Nayantara Mudur, Carolina Cuesta-Lazaro, Cecilia Garaffo, and Floor Broekgaarden. Excitingly it will be part of the CAMeL initiative of CfA to have a CfA-wide effort to pursue Machine Learning Projects across the Astrophysics divisions of CfA.  🙂

I am selected as a Harvard Horizons 2023 scholar! 

The Harvard Horizons Scholars are selected by the Harvard Horizons Faculty Fellows as representatives of the extraordinary researchers who make up Harvard’s PhD community. These nine students form the tenth class of the Society of Horizons Scholars, a fellowship cohort that offers opportunities for long-lasting community, mentorship, and professional and academic growth. The scholars will receive in-depth mentoring on the art of effective presentation, preparing them for a campus-wide symposium on April 11, 2023, at 4:30 p.m. in Sanders Theatre.”

Feeling incredibly proud to close this semester’s Early-career Astronomers & Their Supporters Workshop series at the Center for Astrophysics with a workshop on workplace civility resources & support. This workshop was in collaboration with CfA director Lisa Kewley, Dr Christina Richey and many local ombudspersons, title IX, and other workplace civility resources. I feel very grateful for all the support, including over 300+ attendees.  The links and video can be found on my website tab for the CfA-ECA workshop.

I’m THRILLED to share that I’ve been awarded the NASA FINESST Future Investigator grant to further explore how we can learn about massive stars from the population of gravitational waves. The NASA FINESST award provides 100k$ research funding to pursue independent research during my PhD.
