I am a Lyman Spitzer, Jr. Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University. My research investigates the physical properties of dust in the interstellar medium as well as the interplay of dust, gas, and magnetic fields in our Galaxy.
Previously I was postdoctoral fellow at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory where I began collaborating with the Cosmic Microwave Background community on polarized dust foregrounds. I am now a member of ACT, Simons Observatory, and CMB-S4, where I lead efforts to leverage CMB data for Galactic Science.
I received my PhD from Princeton University in 2015 working with Bruce Draine and my BS in Physics from Caltech in 2010. I grew up in Huntington, WV.
