I currently hold an INFN postdoctoral fellowship, based at the Astronomical Observatory of Trieste, where I study cosmic voids and the epoch of reionization. I am the first author and curator of the Public Cosmic Void Catalog and a member of the HERA collaboration.
I also hold a visiting position with The Ohio State University's Center for Cosmological and Astro-Particle Physics.
Previously I was a postdoc at the Paris Institute of Astrophysics, where I worked with Benjamin Wandelt on many topics, including novel probes of cosmology, analysis of radio interferometer observations, and understanding the Cosmic Microwave Background with the Planck Satellite.
I received my Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Illinois in 2011. I studied with Paul Ricker as a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow. My dissertation focused on magnetic fields in clusters of galaxies. In the course of my research I modified heavily and contributed to the FLASH astrophysical simulation code. I also spent several months working with Rebecca Hartman-Baker, Judy Hill, and Robert Harrison at Oak Ridge National Laboratory on problems in computational chemistry. Previously I received my Bachelor's in Physics from California Polytechnic State University.
I am always available for public outreach, education, and consulting. Please contact me!
