Using a combination of observational and modeling resources, my research is aimed at improving our overall understanding of massive stars, both locally and in the high-redshift universe, so that we can effectively use them as cosmological tools.
In 2014 I was selected as the recipient of the Annie Jump Cannon prize. I received the Robert J. Trumpler award in 2012 for my PhD thesis on the ISM environments and massive star populations of LGRB host galaxies. I received my PhD at University of Hawaii in 2010 and my S.B. in physics from MIT in 2006.
