Current position

I am a research fellow in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton, working under Adam Pound.

Research Interests

My research interest is in general relativity and (more generally) classical field theories. I focus on

I approach these problems analytically using the methods of bitensors, black hole perturbation theory, (covariant) phase space, conformal compactification, and spinors. As such, I am also interested in any problems that might be solved by these methods.

Curriculum Vitae

I studied physics at the University of Chicago from 2009 to 2013. In 2013 and 2014, I worked as a software engineer at Basis Technology Corp. Under the supervision of Eanna Flanagan, I completed my Ph.D. in physics between 2014 and 2020 at Cornell University (my thesis can be found here). In the summer of 2020, I held the position of graduate lecturer at Cornell University. From the fall of 2020 until the fall of 2023, I was a postdoctoral research associate in physics at the University of Virginia, working under David Nichols.

Software Packages

Code and selected source files for projects that I have worked on can be found on on my GitLab account. My most notable project is GWForecasts, a set of Python tools for forecasting the ability for gravitational wave detectors to measure memory effects.
