I'm an associate astronomer at Space Telescope Science Institute, trying to understand the structure of the Galaxy, and especially its dust, using observations of stars. I lead the processing pipeline for the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope. I am the survey coordinator for the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument. My recent work uses the DECam and WISE instruments to measure the properties of billions of stars, as part of understanding the Galaxy's stars, gas, and dust. I also use APOGEE spectroscopy to understand how dust properties vary, and the PS1 survey to infer the three-dimensional structure of the dust in the Milky Way.
