The Galactic Center Gamma-Ray Excess

Novel Physics with Neutron Stars

The Milky Way Galactic Center

High Mass X-Ray Binaries




I am currently a CCAPP postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics at The Ohio State University. I obtained my Ph.D in Physics in June 2013 from the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Full Biography

My Research:


My primary research centers on the search for indirect signals from dark matter annihilation in the universe. I am also interested in the usage of neutron stars as probes for new physics, the astrophysics of the Galactic Center region, and the evolution of massive binary stars.

TeV Halos

TeV electrons accelerated by pulsars may explain the diffuse TeV excess observed by Milagro.

Dark Kinetic Heating

Dark Matter collisions with neutron stars set a minimum neutron star temperature. This may be observable with next-generation instruments.

Star-Forming Galaxies

An analysis of 584 SFGs finds significant dispersion in their far-IR to gamma-ray correlation. SFGs significantly contribute to the IGRB.
