Hello! My name is Sam, and I'm a third year graduate student working with Dan Wik at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City. I also work with Francesca Civano, who is a Physics of the Cosmos cheif scientist at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. As an X-ray astronomer, I use space-based telescopes like NuSTAR and XMM-Newton to study Galaxy Clusters and Active Galactic Nuclei.

Outside of graduate school, I enjoy doing anything that gets me outside, especially snowboarding, backpacking, and taking road trips. I also swing dance, make art, and volunteer at the Natural History Museum of Utah.
