I'm currently an assistant professor in the Henry A. Rowland Department of Physics & 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.
