Chris Dessert is a Flatiron Research Fellow at the Center for Computational Astrophysics with a joint postdoctoral position at NYU. He obtained his undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Austin in physics and mathematics, and his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Michigan. Dessert works on developing novel searches for physics beyond the Standard Model, particularly in the context of astrophysical observations. Towards this end, he has led several indirect searches for axion emission from compact objects. He is interested in harnessing the power of current and future datasets to discover the nature of dark matter and other new physics.
