Science Collaboration(s): 
Strong Lensing (SLSC)

I have a broad background in extragalactic astronomy and cosmology, including strong and weak gravitational lensing, galaxy cluster physics, galaxy evolution, and large scale structure. I now focus on gravitationally lensed explosive transients of all kinds, with a special interest in working towards detecting the kilonova counterpart to a gravitationally lensed binary neutron star merger. Rubin will be key to this, given its wide field of view and sensitivity.

I have served as SLSC Co-chair since 2020, and SLSC Commissioning Liaison since 2019. I am also a member of DESC, and the Galaxies Science Collaboration.
