I am a Hubble Fellow at the University of Colorado at Boulder. My long-term research program is focused on massive stellar astrophysics. 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.
I’ve spent the past three years as an Einstein Fellow here at CU. In 2012 I received the Robert J. Trumpler award for my PhD thesis on the ISM environments and massive star populations of LGRB host galaxies. I got my PhD at University of Hawaii in 2010 and my S.B. in physics from MIT in 2006.
