Research

I'm an experimental physicist who focuses on instrumentation and data analysis for cosmic microwave background (CMB) experiments. I did my graduate work at Johns Hopkins with the Cosmology Large Angular Scale Surveyor (CLASS) collaboration where I built our variable-delay polarization modulators (VPMs) and developed our initial data processing pipeline. My postdoctoral work has been primarily with the Simons Observatory (SO) where I am leading the Integration and Testing program for the Large Aperture Telescope (LAT) Optics Tubes and the Pipeline Working Group responsible for building the initial raw data processing pipeline for the SO telescopes.
