In addition to the work above, I've probed the presence of warm gas in galaxy clusters through synthetic absorption line studies of simulated galaxy clusters, and produced simulations examining gas stripping of the lowest mass Milky Way dwarf satellites. During my time as an undergraduate at the University of Minnesota I've studied the presence of radio halos in galaxy clusters and the evolution of magnetic fields in the cluster ICM.
When I am not doing Astronomy I enjoy rock climbing, a surprisingly easy hobby to maintain even when living in the middle of NYC. Particularly when places like this are just a short drive away.
