My research focuses on understanding how supernova explosions of massive stars affect their environment and enrich the interstellar medium. I am particularly interested in the evolution of supernova remnants and pulsar winds, the connection between stellar progenitors/explosions and their observed remnants, dust production and processing by supernovae, and dust evolution in galaxies.
I previously worked on the James Webb Space Telescope's Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) at STScI (2016-2021) and was a research scientist and JWST postdoctoral fellow at NASA Goddard (2010-2016). I was a postdoctoral researcher and a predoctoral fellow at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian (2007-2010) and obtained my PhD from the University of Minnesota in 2009.
