I am an experimental cosmologist, I study the beginning of the Universe and dark energy. My thesis project was to build the 40GHz receiver for QUIET to probe the earliest period of expansion in the Universe, known as inflation, using sensitive maps of the polarized Cosmic Microwave Background. I am currently a collaborator on ACTPol, which will probe the early Universe at high angular resolution also through the polarized CMB. I recently joined CHIME as a fellow at the Dunlap Institute, where I plan to probe the time dependence of dark energy.
