Michael Bottom


I graduated from Belmont High School in Belmont, Massachusetts in 2004. I received BA's in physics and mathematics from Columbia University in 2008, and worked at a hedge fund as a professional stock trader for the following year before returning to scientific research in Amber Miller's CMB group. In 2010 I began graduate studies in astrophysics at Caltech.

Aside from astrophysics, I am interested in photonics, electrical engineering, and programming.
