I work on Theoretical Cosmology, play squash and love cricket.
I did my undergraduate studies at
just outside Philadelphia.
My PhD is from Cambridge University, England;
I was a Marshall Scholar
at the Institute of Astronomy.
After my PhD I spent time at
Max-Planck Institute fuer Astrophysik just outside Munich, and
I then spent three years as an Assistant Professor at
Pitt before moving
My group at Penn includes:
MgII systems in the SDSS
