Career

I began my career at Microsoft in July of 2018. A few months out of grad school for physics, I was wide-eyed and excited to learn more about software engineering. My love for programming came from work I had done in undergrad and as a graduate student to simulate nuclear interactions. This involved both building models in C++ and performing data analysis on the simulation output using Python.
