My research blends the distinct fields of cosmology, galaxy formation, particle physics, and statistics to reveal the answers to some of the most puzzling enigmas of our Universe: dark matter, dark energy, and neutrinos. In particular, I compare predictions from powerful numerical simulations with observations from cutting-edge galaxy experiments, jointly analyze early Universe probes (e.g., cosmic microwave background) and galaxy observations, and develop analytical approaches, in an effort to provide competitive constraints on galaxy formation and cosmology.

Building healthy relationships with our peers and the wider community is integral to science, so I devote many efforts to community service, mentoring, and outreach.
