2024 eclipse timelapse by Ashley Lian

My name is Sean Lewis. I am originally from Sunnyvale, California and moved to Philadelphia in 2017 to pursue my dream of being an astrophysicist. I have worked as a computational astrophysicist and Research Fellow at Drexel University where my research focuses on the modeling of star cluster formation. I am extremely proud of my work. I've entirely fulfilled my ambitions of being a scientist and I cannot wait to apply the wealth of skills I have developed to endeavors a bit more local than the cosmos. In addition to my love of astronomy, I love computer science and the intricacies of software development. Hence, after receiving my Ph.D. I joined a ten-person software development company in Philadelphia where I design SaaS real-time risk management products for chemical processing companies. One such product is utilized by a company that provides 20% of Japan's import of refined natural gas. I enjoy challenging myself and devling deep into concepts I have little knowledge of to see what I can create. Through this effort I have produced numerous projects of which a few I describe in my blog. Otherwise, I love reading, running, and learning new things.

I received my Ph.D. in Physics in 2023 and my Masters degree in Physics in 2019 from Drexel Univeristy. I received my B.S. in physics at California Polytechnic State University — San Luis Obispo in 2016.
