I am a postdoc working with Alex Filippenko and his group.  My research includes supernovae and their progenitors, as well as other transient events.  I also work on instrumentation, with a focus on infrared sensors and technologies.

Research Interests

-Supernovae; Dust; CSM Interaction; Shock Breakout

-Supernovae Progenitors

-GRB characterization and explosion mechanism

-GRBs as probes of reionization

-Infrared Detectors & Instrumentation; RATIR

-UPDATE: Large dust grains are forming in SN 2010jl!  A nice press release summary here.
