I am an experimental cosmologist with broad expertise in millimeter-wave instrumentation and telescope operations. My research is on conducting Cosmic Microwave Background polarization measurements from the South Pole, searching for primordial gravitational waves left behind by the Big Bang. As a member of the BICEP/Keck and CMB-S4 collaborations, my work spans receiver cryogenic and optical design, optimizing survey uptime and sensitivity, and planning field deployments and infrastructure. As one of the lucky few to study the Universe for a living, I am committed to sharing our scientific advances with students and with the public.
