I am a theoretical astrophysicist, interested in astrostatistics, the gravitational dynamics of exoplanets and dense stellar systems, gravitational waves, compact object evolution, computational astrophysics, and general relativity.
I am an enthusiastic programming language polyglot, and have contributed software to many astronomical projects. You can find some of these contributions on my GitHub page.
I will be working to make summaries of my papers appear here in Fall 2018. In the meantime, if you cannot wait, here are all my papers on ADS.
I am currently an Associate Professor at Stony Brook University and a group leader at the Flatiron CCA. Before moving to New York, I worked as a Birmingham Fellow, Lecturer, and Senior Lecturer at the University of Birmingham from 2013 to 2018. I was a CIERA Fellow at Northwestern University from 2011 to 2013, and a postdoc there from 2009 to 2011. I earned my PhD in Physics from MIT in 2010, and my BS in Physics from Caltech in 2003. I grew up in Oregon, and have lived in Oregon, California, Massachusetts, Illinois, the UK, and New York.
