Brief Bio

Jeremy joined the Astrophysics Science Division as a civil servant in 2010, coming all the way from Baltimore, MD, where he spent three years as a Chandra postdoctoral fellow at the Johns Hopkins University. His research interests include theoretical and computational modeling of black hole accretion flows, X-ray polarimetry, black hole binaries, gravitational wave sources, gravitational microlensing, dark matter annihilation, planetary dynamics, resonance dynamics, and exoplanet atmospheres. He has been described as a "general-purpose astrophysics theorist," which he regards as quite a compliment. Jeremy works closely with members of the Exoplanet, X-ray, and Gravitational Astrophysics Labs on existing and future missions.
