Welcome! I am now a YCAA Prize Fellow at the Yale Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics, but will be starting a faculty job at the University of Virginia in the fall of 2013. I work in the areas of Galactic structure and dynamics, dwarf galaxies and near-field cosmology. Please see here for a postdoc position open with me at UVa.
I was previously a Pappalardo Fellow at MIT. I received my Ph.D in astrophysics at Harvard University, where the Department of Astronomy is
housed at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. My advisor was Charles Alcock. I went to Mount Holyoke for undergrad where I got a BA in Physics.
I went to the United World College of the Atlantic in the UK for high school. I put that here because I'm always interested in connecting with any ex-UWC'ers who have decided to pursue a life in academe.
