I am a graduate student studying astrophysics and cosmology at UT Austin.
Under the direction of my advisor, Volker Bromm, I study the transport of
Lyman-alpha photons through high-redshift galaxies. The close synergy
provided by our early universe group allows me to focus on specific aspects
of the radiative transfer problem.
Previously, I worked on analyzing data from precision measurements of the
cosmic microwave background as well as other areas in theoretical physics.
