welcome
 

I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Utah, where I study particle physics beyond the Standard Model, including DARK MATTER. My research involves the connections between theoretical particle physics, cosmology, and astrophysics. Please have a look at my research page, where you can also find links to some of my talks.

For the 2013-2014 academic year, we're offering a two semester sequence in Quantum Field Theory (QFT) as a joint venture with the University of Hawai'i. You can find the course webpage for QFT II here. In the Spring, in addition to the second semester of QFT, I'm teaching Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics (PHYS 3760). I'm also the faculty advisor for the Utah Women in Physics and Astronomy (WomPA).

I'm on the radio! KPCW's Cool Science Radio interviewed me about the big bang and inflation on April 3rd. I had a great time chatting with hosts Lynn Ware Peek and John Wells!
 

The University of Utah was selected to host a 2014 Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP), which took place January 17-19, 2014. Our conference drew 111 student participants from 13 states and Canada to the campus of the University of Utah. Conference information, including a list of participants and photos, can be found on the Utah CUWiP website.
