Welcome! I received my Ph.d. from UC Berkeley and held postdoctoral positions at Harvard and UC Berkeley before coming to RIT. 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.
