My research is inspired by astrophysical phenomena whose explanation has been cast into doubt, either by new theoretical ideas or new observations. For example, my dissertation used a combination of recent large quasar catalogs and new techniques for estimating supermassive black hole masses to reveal a surprising correlation in quasar activity over cosmic distances that seems incompatible with existing models for how the black holes form. My other interests include dark matter, dark energy and astrophysical measurements of fundamental constants.
