I was an astrophysicist, a postdoc in the Astronomy Unit at the School of Physics and Astronomy of Queen Mary, University of London. Before that a postdoc at the Niels Bohr International Academy at the University of Copenhagen, as part of the Theoretical Astrophysics Group. Before that I spent the bulk of my time at the Department of Astrophysics, American Museum of Natural History where I worked with Mordecai-Mark Mac Low and Denton Ebel while completing my Ph.D. at the Department of Astronomy, Columbia University. In 2007 at McMaster University, I completed my M.Sc. under Hugh Couchman and James Wadsley.

On publications, I am also known as Colin P. McNally or C.P. McNally, to break a NASA ADS name degeneracy.

At the NBIA, I organized the NBIA Summer School on Protoplanetary Disks and Planet Formation (2015), the conference Non-ideal MHD, Stability, and Dissipation in Protoplanetary Disks (2014), and the NBIA Summer School on Computational Astrophysics (2013). I was the Copenhagen organizer of the bi-annual CPH-Lund "Disk" Meetings (2013 - 2016), now continued by others. At the AMNH, I was involved in the Science Research Mentorship Program, and co-created the "Wonderful Universe" curriculum (also available here).
