I am a graduate student studying astrophysics at Princeton. I received my bachelor's in physics and mathematics from Caltech (2011).

My primary interest is in general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics simulations of black hole accretion.

comment Cosmological Bulk Viscosity - is the universe a fluid?
Protip: Just about anything on arxiv posted to gr-qc and cross-posted to astro-ph is pseudoscience. (Yes, this offends lots of people employed as "scientists." No, I will not back down on this claim.)

comment How can I measure the ability of sunglasses to block UV radiation?
When you do find a method, be sure to test regular glasses too. (Both glass and plastic are generally rather opaque to UV, even without special treatment.)

comment How many human cells will get affected at the prick of a pin?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is about biology not physics.

comment How to measure the wavelength of a laser pointer?
If it was at all reasonably priced and you can tell what color it is (green vs. red etc.), then you can figure it out based on what wavelengths are available for sale. Only certain wavelengths are easy to manufacture.
