I am an observational astronomer studying the evolution of galactic structure and stellar populations from the young universe to the present day. My research makes particular use of a technique known as integral field spectroscopy (IFS) and seeks to advance the state of the art in IFS design and data analysis algorithms. At STScI I am the lead instrument scientist for the mid-infrared IFS aboard NASA's James Webb Space Telescope.

I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia and my PhD from Caltech, followed by a Hubble Fellowship at UCLA and a Dunlap Fellowship at the University of Toronto. My full CV is available here.
