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, including NRAO (GBT, JVLA) and Las Cumbres Observatory. Much of my work is focused on trying to understand the nature of dark matter, and some of my recent work is in time-domain astronomy. I am part of the LensWatch collaboration.

You can take a look at various press articles on my work, 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. I am a member of the Committee on the Status of Women in Astronomy.
