Welcome to my home page. I am an associate scientist at the NRAO, where I work in the NAASC providing user support for ALMA. Prior to my job here, I was a research officer (Plaskett Fellow) at NRC Herzberg, where I worked from September 2009 until September 2010. I was a CARMA Fellow at Caltech, where my postdoctoral advisors were Anneila Sargent and John Carpenter. I was a graduate student at Harvard University in the astronomy department, working with Alyssa Goodman. To see a more complete history of my career in astronomy, you can check out my:
CV and list of publications.
