I work at the intersection of distance scales and stellar populations. My current project is focused on calibrating the behavior of the tip of the red giant branch in the near-infrared, and I have previously worked on emission line stars, RR Lyrae period-luminosity-metallicity relations, and instrumentation for the Wide-Field Camera 3 on the Hubble Telescope. I am also part of UW’s Science, Technology, and Society Studies certificate program.
