Research and Background
I am an Assistant Professor in the C. N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Stony Brook University. I was an undergrad at the University of California, Berkeley, I did my PhD at Columbia University, and I spent time as a post doc at the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at the University of Chicago and at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.

My research is in theoretical cosmology. I am broadly interested in developing tools to use observations of galaxies and the cosmic microwave background to learn about the origin and evolution of the universe. I have spent a lot of time thinking about: weak gravitational lensing, primordial non-Gaussianity as a test of inflation, and the cosmic neutrino backround. My current research focuses on the massive cosmic neutrino background and structure formation.
