I’m Jason, a postdoctoral appointee in the High Energy Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory. Between September 2014 and August 2017 I was a joint National Science Foundation Astronomy and Astrophysics/Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics Fellow at the University of Chicago.
My work has involved a mixture of millimeter-wave detector characterization and instrument design for cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarization experiments as well as CMB data analysis spanning the range from low-level data cleaning and reduction to cosmological parameter estimation and forecasting.
These days, my time is spent on various analyses for the South Pole Telescope (SPT) collaboration, but I’m also involved in a variety of outreach activities. Also check out my blog about what it was like to live and work in Antartica in the austral summers of 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 while deploying and upgrading the SPTpol camera.
