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

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.
