About Me.

I am a theoretical astrophysicist interested in a broad range of topics related to the high-redshift Universe including the formation of the first stars, seeds of the first supermassive black holes, and galaxy intensity mapping. I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Toledo. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Columbia University and the Flatiron Institute.
