is a Carnegie Fellow at Carnegie Observatories
in Pasadena. He leverages “big data” to study
supernovae and other transient events.
My research has focused primarily on using large-scale survey projects to study transient events, particularly supernovae and tidal disruption events, and the computation involved with analyzing massive data sets.
I am especially interested in early- and late-time observation of nearby tidal disruption events and population studies of nearby supernovae and their host galaxies. Use the links below to see more information about my primary research interests.
Please see the list below for links to press releases and interviews about my research.
In addition to research, I am also passionate about public outreach, particularly in encouraging young people to pursue careers in astronomy. Use the links to the left to see descriptions of some of the projects I have involved with and links for you to learn more.
