I am an NSF Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at Brown University, currently serving as a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Washington.  I will start as an Assistant Professor at Brown in 2016.  I received my PhD from UC Berkeley in 2013, an MPhil from the University of Cambridge in 2008, and a B.S. from Haverford College in 2007.

My research uses dedicated low-frequency radio astronomy facilities to explore cosmology through observations of the highly-redshifted hyperfine line of neutral hydrogen.  I am a member of both the Precision Array for Probing the Epoch of Reionization (PAPER) and Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) teams, and a founding member of our next-generation successor experiment: the Hydrogen Epoch of Reionization Array (HERA).  My broader interests include physical cosmology, reionization, galaxy formation, and low-frequency radio interferometry.
