I am a Research Assistant Professor in the University of Washington’s Department of Astronomy, and Associate Director of the DiRAC Institute. My research program focuses on time domain and large survey astronomy, with an emphasis on magnetically active stars from missions including Kepler, ZTF, Gaia, and TESS. I also am leading numerous optical technosignatures/SETI projects with collaborators at Breakthrough Listen.
