Science Collaboration(s): 
Transients/variable stars (TVS)

My primary interests involve gravitational waves and their optical counterparts, in particular using kilonovae as probes for the neutron star equation of state and expansion rate of the Universe. Within TVS, I am involved with the survey strategy and software groups, with a focus on technology to detect fast transients with Rubin.
