The MIT Kavli Institute paves the way for new developments in space- & ground-based astrophysics. Our faculty, research staff, and students develop technology & instrumentation with a focus on an engineering and technical core.
Researchers at The Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research explore extreme and unusual phenomena found beyond the Earth including extrasolar planets, black holes, neutron stars, and distant galaxies and clusters of galaxies.
I received my BA in physics from the University of Chicago in 2012, and my PhD in physics from Caltech in 2017.
My research is focused on gravitational wave detection with laser interferometry. I am interested in new techniques for improving the performance of existing instruments like Advanced LIGO, and in the development of new instruments that have the potential to detect gravitational waves from the earliest binary systems.
