I studied astrophysics at Columbia University in NYC, and then did my graduate work with Scott Ransom and Paul Demorest at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. For the 2015-2016 academic year, I was a Frontiers of Science fellow at Columbia and taught first-year undergraduates.
I am a member of the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav; nanograv.org), which is a pulsar timing array experiment. We seek to make direct detections of gravitational waves by the long-term monitoring of stable millisecond pulsars.
Besides gravitational wave detection and astrophysics with pulsar timing arrays, my research interests fall under the broad category of pulsar-related and pulsar-enabled astrophysics.
