I am a graduate student in theoretical physics. My recent research has been in the general area of magnetic spin waves, and more specifically on the self-focusing of these waves. This is a fascinating effect where the energy from an oscillating point source does not go equally in all directions, and instead is focused into certain specific directions. This is known as a caustic (for burning) beam. Even when reflected, this energy follows very specific directions and the incident and reflected angles are not equal. These unconventional angles and patterns intrigue me and I want to better understand this response.

Current hobbies include Mandalorian Mercs costuming, training dogs for autism spectrum individuals, National Ski Patrol, and out-of-doors activities.
