I am a sixth year PhD student at Texas A&M University and currently taking part in the LSSTC Data Science Fellowship Program. I am interested in studying the formation and evolution of galaxies using primarily observational techniques. My recent work focuses on the effect of local environment of galaxies on their star-formation activity and using satellite galaxies to test of the nature of dark matter and feedback mechanisms in galaxy evolution.
My research utilize the data from two of the NASA's space-based Great Observatories (Hubble and Spitzer) and the terrestrial telescopes, including Magellan Telescope, the Blanco 4-m telescope at CTIO. I am involved in multiple international collaborations, including the ZFOURGE, CANDELS, and HETDEX projects.
