I'm an expert researcher in data analysis for Zooniverse citizen science projects, building general purpose data analysis tools, and helping to make astronomy more accessible to people with vision impairments.


I'm a Citizen Science and Outreach Fellow for the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation and act as the Technical Lead of the Tactile Universe project.  I joined the ICG in 2014 after completing my PhD at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
