Star-gazing at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory

I’m an Assistant Professor at Northwestern University in the Department of Physics & Astronomy, and a core astronomy faculty member of CIERA, Northwestern’s astronomy research center.

My research group and I unravel the mysteries enshrouding cosmic explosions, including gamma-ray bursts and electromagnetic emission from gravitational wave sources. We also study their host galaxy environments to understand what conditions give rise to these phenomena.

We take observations using a large variety of telescopes spanning radio, optical, near-infrared, and X-ray wavelengths on the ground and in space to study these explosions and their host galaxy environments. Learn more about CIERA Observing.
