Welcome! I am an observational astronomer and an assistant professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Siena College. I work on a broad range of outstanding problems in galaxy formation and evolution, with the overarching goal of trying to elucidate the most important physical processes responsible for that evolution over the 14 billion-year history of the Universe. Please see my research page for more details. I teach the introductory, calculus-based general physics sequence and most of the astrophysics courses offered here at Siena, and I actively involve students in undergraduate research experiences. If you are a current or prospective student and are interested in doing a research project, please get in contact with me, or check out the Siena Astrophysics webpage for the latest research opportunities.
