As an astronomer, I study how galaxies form and evolve using observations with ground and space-based telescopes, in addition to computer simulations. As an instrument scientist in the JWST NIRSpec instrument branch, I am leading the working group on post-pipeline data analysis and visualization tools for spectroscopy.
