I am queer, bi, and non-binary and I am an astrophysicist.//

I’m an assistant professor at Marquette University, where I split my time between teaching and building a program in gravitational wave astrophysics and instrumentation. I consider myself a hardware specialist – I design and build upgrades for gravitational wave interferometers, so we can find out even more interesting things about the universe by looking for black holes with lasers! I’m currently working on design studies for new gravitational-wave instruments, with a goal of guiding future research and development.
