I am an astronomer living in Socorro, New Mexico, studying super-massive black
holes in other galaxies. These compact, high-energy sources also known as
quasi-stellar objects (QSOs) or quasars. I am particularly interested in
learning why some of these objects have strong radio jets while others do not,
and how radio emission is related to the properties and environment of their
host galaxies. I like working with data from multi-wavelength sky surveys
(particularly radio, optical, and infrared) to help answer these questions, by
studying quasar populations statistically using large numbers of sources.
I worked at the NRAO before moving to Sydney, as well--- I was a postdoctoral
fellow in the North American ALMA
Science Center at NRAO in Charlottesville, Virginia, where I supported
users of the ALMA telescope in
addition to conducting my own scientific research.
