Astrophysicist, Harvard University


I am an astrophysicist in the physics department at Harvard University and the Institute for Theory and Computation at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. I work with Professor Christopher Stubbs as a member of the South Pole Telescope project (and a variety of other projects with less bombastic web presence). Before this I was a grad student with Professor Michael Gladders in the Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics and the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at the University of Chicago. Going back even farther, I was an undergraduate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I worked on the Goodman Spectrograph with Professor Chris Clemens, and then worked on GRB follow-up and on building the PROMPT array with Professor Dan Reichart.
