My current research concerns Dark Cosmology or studying Dark matter in the Dark Ages of the universe. My group uses 21-cm Hydrogen Cosmology to probe the matter-energy content of the early universe. We are creating a data-analysis pipeline to extract low-frequency radio signals from the data to be taken by DAPPER, a satellite that will orbit the moon and use the lunar radio-quiet side to make highly precise, RFI-free measurements. My projects involve studying and modeling the galactic foreground radio emission in order to separate it from the far fainter, desired 21-cm signal.
