Welcome! I received my Ph.d. from UC Berkeley and held postdoctoral positions at Harvard and UC Berkeley before coming to RIT, where I am a faculty member in the School of Physics and Astronomy and program faculty in AST . My work centers around the formation and evolution of galaxies, with the goal of developing astrophysical probes of fundamental physics. In addition to my theoretical work, I also actively use observing facilities at NRAO (GBT, JVLA) and NOAO. My recent work is focused on characterizing the host galaxies of LIGO/Virgo sources.

You can take a look at various press articles on my work (see for instance the BBC and Telegraph articles), or dive right into the papers.

Aside from my research, I enjoy teaching physics and astronomy at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and communicating science to the public. I am also committed to enhancing diversity in academia.
