Currently I am a postdoctoral research associate at the MIT Center for Theoretical physics. I work primarily the groups of Prof. Jesse Thaler and Prof. Tracy Slatyer. My research program is dedicated towards understanding the fundamental laws and particles of nature. I go about this through a variety of means: I study possible new physics models, develop tools to characterize new physics, and explore analysis techniques for data collected at terrestrial and cosmological experiments. This kind of theoretical physics is called phenomenology, and it draws much motivation from the physical world. Experimental data and capability is deeply ingrained in my research even as a theorist, and I greatly enjoy collaborating with experimentalists whenever possible. This has lead me to be an active member of the international collaboration for a future muon collider, an exciting long-term project that would promise to revolutionize the field as we know it.

Before my time at MIT, I've enjoyed working at several different physics departments and collaborations. I did my undergraduate degree at Cornell University from 2013 to 2016. During this time I worked primarily with Prof. Jim Alexander and Prof. Maxim Perelstein on prospects of a proposed beam-on-target experiment. This effort ultimately merged with the INFN experiment PADME. After graduation I recieved a scholarship to work on the NA62 experiment at CERN from January to August 2017 with Dr. Babette Dobrich and Dr. Tommaso Spadaro. In the fall of 2017, I began my PhD in high energy phenomenology at Harvard University under advisor Prof. Matt Reece and (unofficially) Prof. Matt Strassler.

Apart from physics, I love all the physicist things: traveling to new places, going on hikes, kayaking, reading old books, and learning new languages I'll probably never use.
