Curriculum Vitae

I studied astronomy and physics during my undergraduate degree at University of Toronto from 2005 to 2009, with my senior thesis on modelling bow-shock wind nebulae. In 2009, I did a 1 year Master's degree at University of Toronto, working on a short project with Professor Harald Pfeiffer, getting acquainted with  Spectral Einstein Code (SpEC). I continued on with my Ph.D.,  with the main focus on simulating and understanding precessing binary black hole systems,  graduating in 2015. I joined the AEI as a postdoc in September 2015.
