Computational astrophysics, large-scale computing, open-source science


Welcome to my page! I am a first year Astronomy PhD student at the University of Maryland College Park. I work with Professor Benedikt Diemer on large-scale magnetohydrodynamic simulations of galaxy formation. I previously worked with Professor Robert Fisher on large-scale simulations of type Ia supernovae at UMass Dartmouth, and Professor Ian Vega on theoretical astrophysics at the University of the Philippines Diliman. 

Check out UP Astronomical Society, one of the largest student-run astronomy organizations in the Philippines


Take a look at Professor Ian Vega's Gravity Group at UP Diliman where my career started!
