About Me

I'm a sixth year graduate student, interested in cosmology, galaxy evolution and the intersteller medium of galaxies in the early Universe. My graduate research has been making measurements of molecular gas (using CO line emission), using a technique known as "intensity mapping" -- where emission for many thounsands of galaxies (bright and dim) are detected in aggregate. I am the PI of the CO Power Spectrum Survey (COPSS), a project that makes use of 1400 hours of archival observations with the SZA, and 5000 hours of new observations with CARMA, to probe the molecular gas fueling early star formation.
