I am currently a postdoctoral research associate at the Department of Physics at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
From 2020-2022 I was a postdoctoral research associate at the Department of Applied Math and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge.
In 2020, I obtained my PhD from the Department of Physics, Princeton University, under the supervision of Frans Pretorius. A pdf of my thesis, General Relativity and its classical modification in gravitational collapse, can be found here.

Broadly speaking my research has been in theoretical gravitational physics and gravitational wave astrophysics. I have done work in numerical relativity, black hole ringdown, modified gravity, neutron star physics, and relativistic fluids.
A description of some of my work can be found here.
