I am a theorist working on how galaxies evolve, with a focus on the origin and fate of the heavy elements and the physics of the circumgalactic medium.


As part of my STScI duties, I am on Hubble's STIS team and the WFIRST team; I am one of the creators of the Hubble Spectroscopic Legacy Archive, and I am a co-chair of the WFIRST Wide Field Imager Simulations Working Group.


You can search for me on astro-ph or on ADS. I am also on twitter.
