About Me

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Observatories of the Carnegie Institution for Science where I work with John Mulchaey and Daniel Kelson to study groups and cluster of galaxies. As a member of the Carnegie community, I have access to the twin Magellan telescopes at Las Campanas Observatory in Chile, which I use to study the kinematics of galaxies in clusters.

I got my start at Case Western Reserve, where I earned my bachelor's degree and developed a love for the local baseball team. In grad school, I made the long journey to Michigan State University, and worked with Megan Donahue. At MSU, I split my time between CLASH, SOAR, and XMM-Newton.

“Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.”
