I joined the Center for Relativistic Astrophysics in January 2015; I was previously faculty at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

My principal research interests is  gravitational wave astrophysics and LIGO – I have been a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration since 2002.

I am also interested in particle astrophysics; I have been a member of the Borexino Collaboration (solar neutrino detection) until 2013 and the DarkSide Collaboration (direct dark matter search) until 2014.
