I am an assistant professor of physics at NYU.
I was previously a postdoc at Johns Hopkins University (201417)
and at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton (201114).
I received my PhD in astrophysics from Caltech in 2011,
and my undergraduate education at the École Polytechnique in France.
I am broadly interested in theoretical astrophysics and
cosmology, with a focus on analytic work.
My research in astrophysics has concentrated on interstellar spinning dust grains and large molecules.
As a cosmologist, I work on understanding the implications of various darkmatter candidates
and initial conditions on cosmological observables, such as the cosmic microwave background and largescalestructure.
