C. Mark Pirrung Family Jefferson Fellow

I'm a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Virginia Astronomy Department working with my advisor Steve Majewski.  I primarily use APOGEE and other large surveys to study our galaxy, the Milky Way, and it's satellite dwarf galaxies. My main research pursuits are the study of the chemistry of metal-poor and distant populations in our Galaxy and it's massive satellites to better understand how they have formed and evolved over time.
