I am an experimentalist working at the intersection of particle physics and high-energy astrophysics. I use observations of some of the highest energy photons (TeV gamma rays) and some of the most elusive fundamental particles (TeV neutrinos) to learn about a variety of astrophysical objects. I am particularly interested in what the data have to say about potential sources of cosmic-ray accelerators in the universe, and how we can use them to understand dark matter.
