Postdoctoral researcher, Steward Observatory at the University of Arizona in Tucson
I am a postdoctoral researcher at Steward Observatory at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. I was a graduate student in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics and the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at the University of Chicago.
I primarily work on radio instrumentation and observations related to that instrumentation. I am developing a submillimeter receiver for the South Pole Telescope to be used as part of the Event Horizon Telescope VLBI experiment. I am also an active user of CARMA, which I use to study galaxy clusters.
