I study intergalactic gas, the relationship between galaxies and the intergalactic medium, and active galaxies using images and spectra.


I've been teaching introductory astronomy classes to undergrads at the University of Colorado. It's been a transformative experience.


I'm a dad of two precocious kids, a runner of mountain trails, a brewer of beer, and a seeker of adventure in whatever I do.


I write a bit in my spare time about my outdoorsy exploits in Colorado and beyond. Come along on my latest adventures!
