Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm an aspiring physicist and a first year grad student working in a group that builds instruments to map the Cosmic Microwave Background.

S705: From the Big Bang to Black Holes: A Joyride through Spacetime in Splash Fall 2019 (Nov. 02, 2019)
What is cosmological inflation and why does anyone believe in it? How does inflation connect the quantum world to the macroscopic one, and how does that relate to the origin of objects such as galaxies, stars and black holes? How can we understand fundamental physics by looking at clues from our cosmological past, and what do these clues suggest for our future? Join us on a joyride through spacetime as we look to the cosmos for answers to some of the most mysterious questions about the universe!
