I'm a final year PhD student in theoretical high-energy physics at Cornell University's Laboratory for Elementary Particle Physics. My research focuses on phenomenology beyond the Standard Model including models of supersymmetry and extra dimensions. For more details, see my research page or the non-scientist version.
I grew up in Los Angeles and majored in mathematics and physics at Stanford University. As a 2006 Marshall Scholar I spent two years in the United Kingdom where I did Part III of the Maths Tripos at Cambridge University and a masters degree as with the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology at Durham University. I'm now a PhD student at Cornell University's Laboratory for Elementary Particle Physics. My interests include recreational sports (especially table tennis) and science fiction. I am a blogger.

I am in Ithaca, NY unless otherwise stated.
