About me

My main area of research is observational cosmology and the use of Type Ia supernovae to measure distances in the universe. I have worked on measuring local anisotropies, e.g. bulk flows, using data from the Nearby Supernova Factory, and have a continued interest in this after joining the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF), which will find ~2000 low-redshift SNe, almost an order of magnitude more than what is currently available in the literature. For ZTF I am currently developing tools for planning transient surveys, e.g. by simulating the expected lightcurves.

Recently I have also began working on the detection of EM counterparts of gravitational waves, especially from neutron star-neutron star merger (so called macronovae or kilonovae).
