I'm a theoretical astroparticle physicist in the SLAC Theory Group, and Stanford KIPAC. Previously, I was a researcher in the MIT Center for Theoretical Physics.

The overarching goal of my research is to reveal the fundamental nature of dark matter.

Currently, I particularly enjoy thinking about new ways that astrophysical systems can be exploited to look for new particles, including dark matter or other Beyond the Standard Model physics.
