I joined the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Dartmouth College in December 2011 as an Assistant Professor. My interests include active galactic nuclei, galaxy evolution,
large-scale structure of the Universe,
the cosmic X-ray background, and X-ray binary pulsars.
As an undergraduate I studied physics at Yale University, and completed my Ph.D. at the Harvard University Department of Astronomy. I was an SAO Postdoctoral Fellow at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and I retain an affiliation with SAO as a Research Associate. I then served as STFC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Extragalactic Astronomy and Cosmology Group in the Department of Physics at Durham University.
In July-August 2014, our group co-organized, along with colleagues at Durham, a workshop (100 participants) at Durham University on AGN vs. Star Formation: The Fate of the Gas in Galaxies. An overview of the workshop, oral and poster programs, abstracts, and other details are available at the workshop website.
As part of my STFC Fellowship, have given a series of public talks at dozens of schools and astronomical societies around the UK.
