I am a Biträdande lektor (Assistant Professor) in the Astronomy Department at Stockholm University. I am mainly interested in the dynamics of compact objects via their creation in supernovae and their connection to the detailed microphysics. I am also particularly interesting the associated neutrino signal and what its measurement can tell us about the underlying microphysics. I graduated with my Ph.D. from Caltech in the TAPIR group. If you are interested, here is my thesis. I obtained my bachelor from the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) in 2007 in Science (Physics, Honours, Coop). I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Canadian Institute of Astrophysics from 20122014 and a Hubble Fellow in the Physics Department at North Carolina State University from 20142017. For all the details, have a look below and/or at my CV. Here is my author query at arXiv, and my article library at Nasa ADS.
