I am a Dunlap Fellow at the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Toronto.
I study the early stages of star formation in isolation and in clusters. My research focuses on analysing the structure and composition of dense gas in star forming molecular clouds through observations at multiple single-dish and interferometer telescope facilities.
I completed my PhD in 2009 at the University of Victoria in beautiful British Columbia, working with James Di Francesco (see my thesis here). I next became involved in preparations for the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) as a Postdoctoral Fellow with the North American ALMA Science Center until 2012.
