My research interests are predominantly in the areas of observational cosmology and galaxy studies, with the goal of improving our understanding of dark energy, dark matter, and galaxy formation.  This work includes the use of weak gravitational lensing and other analysis techniques, with projects that range from development of improved data analysis methods, to actual application of such methods to existing data.  Currently, I am focusing on data from the SDSS-III and the Hyper-SuprimeCam (HSC) survey, and I am working on upcoming surveys including LSST and Euclid.
