San Diego, California

I am an Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of California, San DiegoPhysics Department. I received my Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley Physics Department working on the POLARBEAR CMB Polarization Experiment.

My research focuses on using the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) to explore cosmology and the fundamental physics of the Universe. This requires developing novel technologies to build mm-wave instrumentation with unprecedented sensitivity. I have collaborated on several publications on these topics.

I am currently developing and deploying the Simons Array, an array of three telescopes using more than 20,000 cryogenic bolometers to measure the CMB over three spectral bands to address questions about the universe's earliest times and its formation of gravitational structure. I also work on developing the technology necessary for the future of CMB and astrophysics research.
