The focus of my research has covered a variety of topics in the field of time-domain astrophysics. My work in recent years has ranged from the gamma-ray and x-ray analysis of the prompt emission from gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), multi-wavelength observations of their long-lived afterglows, demographic studies of supernovae and GRB host galaxies, and the use of GRB afterglows as probes of the physical conditions of the early Universe. I am currently at Stanford University, where I am leading the development of techniques for the analysis of high-energy transient phenomena and investigating the origins of high-energy (GeV) emission from a variety of transient sources detected by NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.
