About

I am a postdoctoral scholar at UC Riverside working with Dr. Gillian Wilson.  I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Ph.D. in Physics, having previously attended Rutgers University, where I obtained a B.S. in Astrophysics.

My research involves analyzing light from large numbers of distant galaxies and performing statistical tests to better understand how galaxies grow and evolve.  My dissertation work, under Dr. Kim-Vy Tran, used data from the ZFOURGE survey to investigate rapidly star-forming galaxies as well as those which are in the process of stopping the formation of new stars.
