My research interest is Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) polarization observation experimentation. The CMB polarization B-mode signal contains rich information related to the mechanism of inflation and massive neutrinos in the early universe. I primarily work on instrumentation for CMB groundbased experiments such as the Simons Array and the Simons Observatory. I research telescope optical design and optical simulation analysis. I optimize the optics of these telescopes in order to obtain high sensitivity and throughput across all observation frequencies of interest.
