Research

My current research examines numerical simulations of clusters of galaxies for comparison with observational tests of the the growth of large-scale structure and cosmological tests such as the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect. My observational background includes studies at both radio and X-ray wavelengths.  I also direct a NASA-funded center to study astrophysics from the Moon called the Lunar University Network for Astrophysics Research (LUNAR).
