I investigate the early universe and subsequent growth of structure using the cosmic microwave background (CMB). To do so, I build and take data with low-noise detectors and experiments using superconducting and quantum sensing techniques.
I received my PhD in particle astrophysics from Caltech in 2012, working on direct detection of WIMP dark matter with the CDMS-II experiment. My research interests then expanded to cosmic inflation and observational cosmology. I was a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford through 2015 before being appointed as a Wolfgang Panofsky Fellow at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. In 2017, I won a DOE Office of Science Early Career Award. I am currently appointed as a Lead Scientist at SLAC, where I am department head for CMB. My publications are available on ORCID, Google Scholar and iNSPIRE-HEP.
