I am currently a PhD candidate in the Astronomy department at Ohio State University working with Dennis Stello and Marc Pinsonneault on red giant asteroseismology with Kepler and K2, 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 1 (TGAS) in their work, see my paper for a formula to correct spatially-correlated systematic errors in TGAS parallaxes.

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 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.
