I am an assistant professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Bowdoin College. My areas of research are in astroparticle physics and high-energy astronomy. I am interested in supermassive black holes, active galactic nuclei (AGN), blazars and their connections to neutrinos “ghost particles”. I focus on multiwavelength and multimessenger studies, but I have the most experience with X-ray observations. I have also worked on projects about the X-ray observability of Supernovae type Ia, X-ray binaries, pulsars, and peculiar AGN.
I was previously an Eberly Research Fellow (2019-2022) at the Pennsylvania State University and a Postdoctoral Researchers at the Anton Pannekoek Institute and GRAPPA at the University of Amsterdam. I received my PhD from the Remeis Observatory at the Erlangen Center for Astroparticle Physics at the Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg.
