Research

I work in the Niemack Lab at Cornell mostly on the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT). My research focuses on polarization calibration of the ACT detectors, detector testing for future CMB telescopes, analysis of ACT data, and building tools for monitoring/controlling/organizing site operations on ACT.

On This Page

This page compiles a subset of the research projects I am working on/have worked on, with the goal of being a helpful place for those interested in contributing to or continuing any of the projects.

Source code and documentation are provided where available. In cases where the documentation consists of a README on the gitlab/github page these will link to the same place.

Many of the links to code/documentation will likely be password protected, depending on the project. Please get in touch if you would like access.

Web Tools

These are links to tools designed to be consumed in your browser and represent some of the earlier work I did in the lab at Cornell, namely the fridge monitor.

Fridge Monitor
