I am an associate professor in the astronomy department at Ohio State.

Previously, I was a Hubble Fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (2014-2015) and an Einstein Fellow and Pappalardo Fellow in Physics at MIT (2011-2014). I earned my PhD in astronomy & astrophysics in 2011 at the University of California, Santa Cruz and my bachelors degree in physics from MIT in 2004.

My research focuses on the birth and death of massive stars and how these processes affect the surrounding interstellar medium (ISM). I study star-forming regions and supernova explosions in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies using data across the electromagnetic spectrum (radio, mm, IR, optical, X-ray, and gamma rays).
