Research Interests

My research interests focus on the formation and evolution of galaxies in the very early universe. I primarily use the Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes to find and study high-redshift Lyman-break galaxies, including those gravitationally lensed by massive galaxy clusters

I am a member of the Cluster Lensing and Supernova survey with Hubble (CLASH), Brightest of Reionizing Galaxies (BoRG), and Hubble Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) Science teams as well as a science advisor to the Hubble Frontier Fields program.

My Ph.D. dissertation focused on Hubble Space Telescope (HST) / Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) observations of the kinematics and ionization structure in the narrow-line region (NLR) of Seyfert galaxies.
