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.
I served as chair of the Local Organising Committee for the large international conference (360 participants) on Galaxy Formation at Durham, 18-22 July 2011. An overview of the conference and program are at the conference website.
As part of my STFC Fellowship, have given a series of public talks at dozens of schools and astronomical societies around the UK.
