I am a cosmologist interested in mapping the buildup of cosmic structure and testing gravity and the standard cosmological model on the largest scales. In particular I use gravitational lensing of the cosmic microwave background to constrain the amplitude and growth of structure formation. I am also interested in other CMB secondary anisotropies such as the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect; galaxy formation and evolution; exploiting the combined power of photometric and spectroscopic surveys; and the intergalactic medium. I am a member of the DESI, Simons Observatory, and CMB S4 collaborations.
