Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! I'm Kylie, and I study physics, astronomy, and Japanese at MIT. When I'm not solving problems on my physics psets, I'm doing astrophysics research, watching anime, or playing OSU. I grew up in Twin Falls, Idaho, where the skies are much darker, which led me to appreciate the night sky and become inspired to pursue astronomy as a career. Someday in the distant future I want to leave this planet and live somewhere else, like Mars or the Moon.
