I work at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory to improve understanding of clouds and cloud processes, focusing on low marine clouds, extreme weather, remote sensing, and data optimization.

Before 2012, I was an astrophysicist and a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LIGO stands for  Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory) specializing in gravitational waves from supernovae (exploding stars) and magnetars (magnetic neutron stars, the strongest magnets in the universe).
