I am a NASA Einstein Fellow at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.  My research focuses on understanding the regions around supermassive black holes.  For my graduate work in astrophysics at the University of California Santa Barbara, I worked with Tommaso Treu and Brendon Brewer to develop a method for modeling the geometry and kinematics of the broad line region in order to measure supermassive black hole masses more precisely.  For a list of my publications look here and for a description of my research look here.
