I am an NSF Astron­omy & Astro­physics Post­doc­toral Fel­low cur­rently work­ing at the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton Depart­ment of Physics.  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, as well as the pro­posed Hydro­gen Epoch of Reion­iza­tion Array (HERA) experiment.
