4011 McPherson Laboratory
My research sits at the intersection of astrophysics and nuclear physics, seeking to understand which nuclear reactions occur when, where, and under what astrophysical conditions. By their very nature, the nuclear reactions powering stars and occurring in the wake of supernovae change the chemical composition of the material. This material is ultimately expelled as gas back to the host galaxy's interstellar medium, where it can be incorporated into the next generation of stars and planets that will condense out of the gas.
