One of the reasons I love astronomy is that it’s very much a social science. I’ve been privileged to work with a fantastic group of collaborators and mentors who I’m always learning from, and who make this job fun. I’ve compiled a list of some of my close collaborators below, with a brief note about what we’ve worked on together. My goal is to make this list grow both vertically and horizontally!

Evan Bauer (Harvard): runaway white dwarfs

Charlie Conroy (Harvard): stars and galaxies

Kareem El-Badry (Harvard -> Caltech): white dwarf binaries, dwarf galaxies

Boris Gaensicke (Warwick): white dwarf binaries, debris disks

Mario Gennaro (STScI): resolved stellar populations, initial mass function

Hsiang-Chih Hwang (JHU -> IAS): white dwarfs and binaries

Alexander Ji (Chicago): SDSS-V, high-resolution stellar spectroscopy

Rohan Naidu (Harvard -> MIT): galactic archaeology, dwarf galaxies

Hans-Walter Rix (MPIA): our galaxy

Vadim Semenov (Harvard): disk formation in IllustrisTNG

Kevin Schlaufman (JHU): population III and metal-poor stars

Shivani Shah (Florida): element abundances from low-resolution BOSS spectra

Yuan-Sen Ting (ANU -> OSU): stellar spectroscopy, chemical inference

Zach Way (GSU): wide binaries, m-dwarf isochrones

Nadia Zakamska (JHU): white dwarfs, binaries
