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 Why chewing a battery increases its power?
Wait, a battery wasn't working so you tried to eat it? Did something get lost in translation?

comment Help identifying a Fusion approach
@WetSavannaAnimal Perhaps, though the line "leave behind only minimal radiation that would dissipate in a few hours" strikes me as describing neutron radiation. (On the side, I'm trying to imagine how the Moon could possibly be the most cost-effective source of ${}^3$He.)

comment When is Einstein summation implied by Lorentz indices?
Where does dimensional analysis come in? Each of the terms in $A^\mu B_\mu$ has the same dimension (since they are added), so dimension can't tell you whether the author blundered and meant $A^0 B_0$.
