RESEARCH

I am a theoretical and computational cosmologist and astrophysicist. My research is generally centered on the development and application of N-body, hydrodynamic, and radiative transfer simulations to model and interpret the observable Universe. In cosmology, I am especially interested in complex problems involving the gas, stars, galaxies, quasars, and clusters of galaxies that provide information about the underlying dark matter and dark energy. In astrophysics, I would particularly like to work on star and planet formation and the development of planetary atmospheres. I also collaborate with machine learning experts and statisticians to apply modern approaches to improve multi-wavelength data analysis and numerical simulations.
