I am an assistant researcher for the Institute of Gravitation and the Cosmos. I work with Dr. Bangalore Sathyaprakash to measure cosmological parameter anisotropy with gravitational wave events expected for future detector networks. I also work with Dr. Chad Hanna to support gravitational-wave and multi-messenger astrophysics via research cyberinfrastructure, including the Scalable Cyberinfrastructure for Multi-Messenger Astrophysics (SCiMMA) project, the Astrophysical Multimessenger Observatory Network (AMON), and the SuperNova Early Warning System (SNEWS). I also collaborate with PSU's Institute for Computational and Data Sciences (ICDS) to develop cyberinfrastructure for the GWave computing cluster.
