My primary research question is "How can we make higher-precision measurements of cosmological parameters?" As a theoretical cosmologist, I approach these problems by constructing improved models of cosmological observables and systematics. I do this through a combination of analytical work, simulations, and comparisons to real data. I am actively involved in the weak lensing working group for the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope and the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) Lyman-alpha forest working group. At Princeton, I hope to turn my attention to CMB delensing and combining LSS and CMB datasets. Before starting at Princeton and CCA, I was a graduate student in Physics at The Ohio State University from August 2016-August 2021 working under Chris Hirata.
