During my time at MIT, my research focused on building an interferometer telescope, as part of the research group

List of publications:
I completed a significant new study of interstellar dust grains, their variations in size and composition, and the effects on interstellar extinction.
Building on that work, I studied contribution from interstellar and non-galactic dust on the detection of the spectral distortions of the cosmic microwave background.
Finally, I created the first 3D map of the temperature of the interstellar medium dust. The work is published as the third chapter of my thesis and is now in pre-print as an article.
Currently, I am working as a Postdoctoral Scholar at UCLA in Professor Tommaso Treu’s research group. I am looking at using strong lensing to put constraints on dark matter models. For certain classes of dark matter theories, I am trying to figure out what would be the growth of structure, and what observables they would have, leading to comparisons with data.
