I am a second-year Astronomy Ph.D. student at the University of Washington. Currently, I work under Dr. Eric Bellm and the Vera C. Rubin Observatory data commissioning and alert production team with a focus on time-series analysis and transients by writing and evaluating period-finding algorithms that will be implemented in the alert production of the forthcoming Vera C. Rubin Observatory. I also work with Dr. James Davenport on the discovery and characterization of long-deep-eclipsing stellar systems using Gaia and the Zwicky Transient Facility survey. Particularly, we are interested in collecting a statistical sample of such long-deep-eclipses as a probe to understand their formation channels.
