Center for Astrophysics


I am a research associate working with Edo Berger, and my interest lies in radio transients, such as supernovae and tidal disruption events (when a black hole rips apart a star). I am also active in outreach - my work has appeared in Scientific American, Astronomy, and elsewhere, and millions on Reddit know my "astronomer here!" posts as /u/Andromeda321. I am also on the CfA Social and Recreation Committee.
