I am pursuing a Ph.D in Astronomy at The Ohio State University, and I expect to graduate in Spring 2018. My graduate work can be found in my CV and elsewhere on this site -- but a picture of my dog, Luna, and cat, Ollie, can only be found here.

Not the best picture, but a perfect example of their relationship.

I received my B.A. in Physics (with an Astronomy concentration) and Mathematics from Northwestern University in 2012. I worked with Drs. Vicky Kalogera and Will Farr on inplementing interpolation techniques for the MCMC algorithm used to estimate parameters of gravitational-wave signals from coalescing compact binaries. I was awarded the Outstanding Senior Thesis in Physics and Astronomy prize for my honors thesis on the topic, which can be found here.
