I'm currently an assistant professor in the Henry A. Rowland Department of Physics and Astronomy of Johns Hopkins University. I'm also affiliated with JHU's Institute for Data Intensive Engineering and Science. I'm interested in exoplanets, planet formation, metal-poor stars, and the structure and formation of the Milky Way. I also like to think about the application of probability and statistics to theoretical and observational astrophysics, in particular stochastic modeling, multivariate analysis, and data mining.
