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


I teach introductory astronomy and planetary science 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, an explorer, 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!
