Welcome to my site! I'm a physicist doing research in the area of theoretical particle physics, and my work seeks to answer questions about the fundamental workings of nature: What is matter made of on the most basic level? How do the interactions of elementary particles shape the structure of the Universe and everything in it? What is the mysterious dark matter that fills the Universe but does not seem to be made of the same stuff as we are? I also research new ways in which particle colliders and other experiments can shed light on some of the deepest questions we have about the nature of our world.

I recently joined the faculty of the Physics Department at Harvey Mudd College. Before coming to Mudd, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the particle physics theory group at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory at Stanford, with earlier stints at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and Harvard University.
