Title of Research:
“Astrophysical Windows on New Degrees of Freedom”  

Update Novemer 2010: 
I finished my Ph.D. at Caltech in the summer of 2010, and have moved on to a postdoc at the Institute for Advanced Study, in Princeton, NJ. I continue to be broadly interested in topics in theoretical cosmology, with a recent focus on understanding the distribution of baryons relative to dark matter and cosmological hydrogen recombination. My work on constraints to dark matter candidates and deviations from canonical thermal histories in the early universe continues, and I am enjoying the intellectual ferment of the IAS tremendously.
