Education:  PhD, Stanford, 2011 (specialization in astrophysics)

Research:

Recently, I have worked on observational and theoretical studies of neutron stars to set constraints on axions, a particle from theoretical physics.

That research is described in the journal Physical Review D.

I have previously worked on large extra dimensions: http://dx.doi.org/10.1088/1475-7516/2012/02/012

I am an affiliated member of the Fermi Large Area Telescope collaboration.
