Links to my ADS Publications and arXive preprints.

During my time at MIT, my research focused on building an interferometer telescope, as part of the research group lead by MIT Professor Max Tegmark.

During my PhD, I looked at interstellar dust and its impact on Cosmic Microwave Background experiments. I worked in the research group of Harvard Professor Douglas P. Finkbeiner.

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.
