Research focus

I am currently researching methods for efficient and engaging data visualization in the sciences.


For my PhD work, I studied feedback in star clusters with numerical simulations, and later simulations of galaxy formation. I recently finished National Science Foundation and Institute of Theory and Computation postdoctoral fellowships at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. In addition to my research, I am also active in outreach and educational activities, particularly in the mentoring of students and development of open source visualization tools.
