Research
I am the Schramm Experimental Fellow at the Fermilab Center for Particle Astrophysics. I am a member of both the Dark Energy Survey (DES) and the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT). While I am interested in many areas of particle astrophysics and cosmology, my primary research focus is the search for dark matter through indirect detection and astrophysical probes. As an experimentalist, I am heavily involved in efforts to improve the instruments that I work with and the data that they take.

Ongoing Scientific Projects:

Past Scientific Projects: Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (Fermi)
 
Talks, Lectures, & Workshops
