I am currently a CCAPP postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics at The Ohio State University. I obtained my Ph.D in Physics in June 2013 from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
My primary research centers on the search for indirect signals from dark matter annihilation in the universe. I am also interested in the astrophysics of the Galactic Center region, and the evolution of massive binary stars.
A thorough analysis of the population of radio galaxies indicates that they dominate the isotropic gamma-ray flux, this has implications for IceCube.
The contribution of star-forming galaxies to the isotropic gamma-ray flux is also large. This leads to an interesting source of tension, as the best-fit models for radio and star-forming galaxies combine to overproduce the total emission.
