meI am an assistant professor in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Virginia. I am a theoretical astrophysicist and my work has frequently focused on the study of accretion physics and radiative transfer. My research has included topics such as accretion flows, black holes, magnetars, radiative transfer, numerical simulations of magnetohydrodynamics, and feedback from star formation. Although I am a theorist, much of my work has involved direct modeling of observational data.

Before arriving at the University of Virginia, I was a senior research associate at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics. Previous to that, I was a postdoctoral member and Chandra Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study. I obtained my Ph.D. from the physics department at UCSB and a B.S. in physics from Carnegie Mellon.
