Ph.D., Stony Brook University, 2016


My research area is at the intersection of particle physics and astrophysics. I am interested in the search for dark matter particles, primordial non-Gaussianties, and other new physics through astrophysical and cosmological data and laboratory experiments. I received my Ph.D. at C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics, Stony Brook University in 2016. I was then a postdoc at Boston University before moving to Chicago.

Outside of the office, I like reading books and playing board games. I also enjoy sailing on Lake Michigan on a summer day.
