I am an observational cosmologist interested in measuring non-Gaussianity. My work has primarily focused on studying non-Gaussianity in the cosmic microwave background with the Atacama Cosmology Telescope and the Simons Observatory. Through such studies we can learn both about the physics of the early universe, through constraints on primordial non-Gaussianity, and about the properties of galaxies and clusters, through measurements of CMB secondary anisotropies. Beyond the CMB, I have been interested in developing and applying measures of non-Gaussianity to weak lensing data and studying how such statistics are impacted by baryonic processes in galaxies.
