I am a Professor in the department of Physics and Astronomy in UC Riverside. I was formerly an Einstein Fellow at Johns Hopkins University, working with Marc Kamionkowski, at Carnegie Mellon and the Institute for Advanced Study. My PhD was with Hiranya Peiris and Martin Haehnelt at the IoA, Cambridge.

I am interested in various aspects of theoretical and numerical cosmology, in particular simulating massive neutrinos, the Lyman-alpha forest and the implications of inflation. I also work on galaxy formation, particularly circumgalactic absorbers.

I recently wrote a paper on LIGO and Primordial Black Holes. The associated press release was featured in Daily Mail, the Washington Post, Reddit, New Scientist and Symmetry magazine, amongst others.
