I currently work with the LSST Data Management team as a Project Science Analyst. My main research focus is supernovae, especially those of Type Ia.

I completed a Bachelors of Science with Honours and a Specialization in Astrophysics at Queen’s University in Kingston ON Canada, with a Junior year abroad at the University of Glasgow in Scotland, and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Astrophysics at the University of Victoria in Victoria BC Canada. After a joint postdoctoral fellowship at UC Santa Barbara and the Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network ( I moved to a senior postdoctoral fellowship at UC Berkeley and then joined the the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope team at the University of Washington as a research staff scientist in 2016.
