Current Graduate Student
cosmology, quasars, large surveys, galaxy formation and evolution
I'm a grad student working on cosmology with Martin White and Simone Ferraro at UC Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. My primary project is measuring cross-correlations between infrared galaxies from the unWISE catalog and CMB lensing from Planck. unWISE is the largest extant galaxy catalog, with 500 million galaxies out to z=2. These cross-correlations will allow us to make a tomographic measurement of sigma8, thereby constraining cosmology and the growth of structure. I'm also working on understanding quasar halo occupation with the thermal Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect; and algorithms for accelerating computation of the nonlinear scale.
In the past, I've worked on galaxy alignments in the cosmic web, and IGM tomography to probe the small-scale z~2 universe. I maintain involvement in the CLAMATO IGM tomography survey on Keck-1/LRIS.
