I straddle theoretical and observational cosmology, acting as an interface between the two disciplines. I enjoy thinking about how observations can constrain or rule out theoretical models in cosmology, and conversely, what sort of observational signatures are predicted by various theories.


I grew up in Hong Kong, living there through the end of high school. From 2002 to 2006, I was an undergraduate at Princeton University, graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Physics. My Ph.D. is from MIT, which I completed in 2012. From 2012 to 2015, I was a BCCP Fellow at Berkeley. Since Sept. 2015 I have been a Hubble Fellow.
