Welcome! I am a NSF Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Santa Barbara. Feel free to explore these pages to learn more about my astrophysics research.

(My running blog is here if that's what you're after.)

The photos to the right are of myself and my dog, Summit, on the summits of various Colorado 14ers. There will be more Summit shots to come as we explore the California mountains.


Check out my newest paper: Strongly Magnetized Accretion Discs Require Poloidal Flux.

I recently defended my Ph.D. Thesis: Rethinking Black Hole Accretion Discs.
