I am an Assistant Professor and theoretical astrophysicist at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at RIT and a core-faculty member in the Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation in the School of Mathematical Sciences.  Previously,  I was an NSF Fellow at RIT and a Post-doctoral Fellow in the Department of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University.  I received my Ph.D. from the University of Rochester.


Currently, I am working on the theory of core-collapse supernovae, binary interactions on the post-main sequence, the origin of strongly magnetized compact objects, and the physics of common envelopes.
