  • Brief Bio

    I'm an astrophysicist currently working at the HEASARC/LAMBDA data center at GSFC to support both the high energy astrophysics and CMB communities.  I have previously worked in software support for high energy astrophysics missions RXTE and Integral before pursuing a PhD project studying the shape of the Universe using the CMB anisotropies.  My recent research focus has been on using multi-wavelength information from the radio to the gamma-ray bands to model the large-scale magnetic fields in our Galaxy.  

    Among my on-going projects is the maintenance of the publicly available hammurabi code for simulating observations of polarized synchrotron emission, polarized thermal dust emission, Faraday rotation measure, dispersion measure, etc. based on 3D models of our Galaxy.

    My CV can be found here.
