As of August 2016, I am an Assistant Professor of Physics at at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, UT. Prior to this I was an NSF Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Arizona. I completed my MS and PhD in Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I went to college at Cornell College in my home state of Iowa.

My research focuses on molecular gas in star-forming galaxies, primarily using the Herschel SPIRE Fourier Transform Spectrometer, the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA), and the Arizona Radio Observatory (ARO).  I am also very interested in improving my skills as a teacher of astronomy, helping to advance the participation of underrepresented groups in STEM, and learning about the interaction between science and policy.  Please use the links to the left to learn more about my work.
