Hi! I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Physics, Carnegie Mellon University. Previously I have been a Postdoctoral Fellow working in the Center for Particle Cosmology, part of the University of Pennsylvania, a PhD student at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), University of Cambridge, and an undergraduate at Yale University.
I am a particle cosmologist, which means I apply the methods of theoretical particle physics to the outstanding problems in modern cosmology. Cosmology is the study of the origins, evolution, and fate of the Universe, and each of these is intimately bound up with the underlying fundamental laws of physics. I have been interested in the conceptual and observational implications of massive gravity and its generalization, massive bigravity, as well as more general field theoretical questions inspired by modifying general relativity, and questions of effective field theories.
