Research
My research areas include cosmology, inflation, and gravitational lensing. I use cosmic microwave background (CMB) observations to test cosmological models. Specifically, I am part of the BICEP/Keck Array and the South Pole Telecope collaborations. In addition, I am interested in using Machine Learning techniques for astrophysics, and I am a part of DeepSkies Lab.
