About Me

I am currently a postdoctoral research associate at Carnegie Mellon University. My interests include Local Group dwarf galaxies, star clusters, stellar streams, galaxy kinematics, and dark matter (and the intersection of these topics). I am involved in several Milky Way and near-field cosmology projects including the DECam Local Volume Exploration Survey (DELVE) , the Southern Stellar Stream Spectroscopic Survey (S5) , the Dark Energy Survey (DES) (Milky Way working group), and The Magellanic Satellites Survey (MagLiteS). These projects are searching for new dwarf galaxies and stellar streams or characterizing them with spectroscopy.
I was a Postdoc and Mitchell Astronomy Fellow in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Texas A&M University from 2016-2019.
I completed my graduate work at the University of California-Irvine, working on dynamical models of galaxies under the supervision Manoj Kaplinghat.
