I am currently a postdoc at the University of New South Wales, working with Dennis Stello on red giant asteroseismology with Kepler, K2, and TESS, most recently in the context of the Galactic Archaeology Programme. I am interested in testing stellar models with the asteroseismic sample of K2, and am currently working on doing just that.

For those that use Gaia Data Release 2 in their work, see my paper on how to account for parallax systematics.

For those interested in stellar classification in the era of big photometric surveys like LSST, see this paper, where we show that Gaussian processes are useful for modeling and classifying quasi-periodic stars.

I completed my Ph.D. under the supervision of Marc Pinsonneault at Ohio State University, where we worked at the intersection of Kepler, K2, and Gaia. We simultaneously characterized Gaia parallax systematics and tested asteroseismic scaling relations. I received A.B. magna cum laude from Princeton University in Astrophysical Sciences, where I worked with Michael Strauss on identifying AGN-galaxy strong lenses in SDSS; Richard Gott on predicting Slow-Roll dark energy constraints with Planck; and David Spergel on AGN-galaxy magnification weak lensing in WISE and BOSS.
