Research:

My research is focused on the physics behind core-collapse supernovae, the effect these explosions have on their environments, and the compact objects they leave behind. The main goal of my research is to use observations of the supernova remnants, neutron stars, and pulsar wind nebulae created in these explosions to determine how massive stars explode and the properties of the neutron stars left behind.
