Research

I am an Einstein Fellow at Johns Hopkins University, working with Marc Kamionkowski. I was formerly 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.
