Note: As of September 1st, 2021, I have moved to McMaster University.

Hi! I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Physics, Carnegie Mellon University. Previously I have been a Postdoctoral Fellow working in the Center for Particle Cosmology, University of Pennsylvania; a PhD student at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), University of Cambridge; and an undergraduate in Astronomy and Physics at Yale University.

I am a particle cosmologist, which means I apply the methods of theoretical particle physics to the outstanding problems in modern cosmology and astrophysics. Cosmology is the study of the origins, evolution, and fate of the Universe, and each of these is intimately bound up with the underlying fundamental laws of physics. I have been interested in the conceptual and observational implications of modified theories of gravity for dark energy and inflation, as well as effective field theory in cosmology. More recently I have been interested in black hole perturbation theory and its symmetries.
