I am a theoretical physicist, photographer and amateur astronomer.
I am a member of the cosmology group at the University of Minnesota Duluth. My colleagues here are Diana Battefeld, Thorsten Battefeld and Vitaly Vanchurin. Prior to Duluth, I was a postdoctoral fellow with Justin Khoury and Mark Trodden at the Center for Particle Cosmology, University of Pennsylvania. Before Philadelphia, I was a postdoctoral scholar at the cosmology group at Arizona State University. To pursue my interests in cosmology, during graduate school I moved from Yale to CERCA, Case Western Reserve University, to do my PhD work with Harsh Mathur, Glenn Starkman and Tanmay Vachaspati.
I have interests in theoretical aspects of gravitation, particle cosmology, and the structure and dynamics of classical and quantum field theories. I am also interested in Mathematica computing. You can find my publications here or here. In my free time, which is somewhat ephemeral, I bring out my Canon EOS 5D for a shoot.
