A picture of my face

I am a researcher tackling questions in cosmology. I'm currently the P. J. E. Peebles Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for the Universe, Perimeter Institute, and I'll be starting as an Assistant Professor at the University of Southern California in August 2022. I was previously a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University, and my PhD thesis at Stony Brook University focused on constraining Dark Energy using the technique of Gravitational Lensing. I'm primarily involved with the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT) collaboration, a wonderful group of people who operate and analyze data from a microwave telescope in the Atacama Desert in Chile. This telescope measures radiation left over from the hot, dense past of the Universe. We're now gearing up for a bigger project -- the Simons Observatory -- which will bring new insights into the very early universe, neutrinos, dark matter and dark energy.
