I'm a Scientific Computing Consultant at the Research Computing Center at the University of Chicago. My background is in computational astrophysics and cosmology. I use large numerical simulations to study the growth of cosmological structure and the formation of galaxies. I received my PhD in 2007 during which I developed the cosmological N-body+hydrodynamic code CART with my advisor Andrey Kravtsov. I held postdoctoral positions at The Institute for Advanced Study and Yale University before returning to University of Chicago to work in high-performance computing.
From time to time I like to play around with data and make cool things.
