I study the properties of high redshift galaxies and quasars. I’ve worked closely with both the Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS) and the WFC3 Infrared Spectroscopic Parallels (WISP) survey teams. My thesis advisor is Bahram Mobasher. Lately my research has focused on the detailed physical properties of starbursting galaxies at high redshift derived from ground-based near-infrared spectroscopy.

From Oct. 2011-March 2014 I was a visiting predoctoral fellow at the Carnegie Observatories, working with Pat McCarthy. Before that I was a predoctoral fellow at the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center (IPAC) at Caltech, working with Peter Capak.

Update: I am now a postdoc at IPAC/Caltech (new website), and a member of the Euclid consortium.

My publications on ADS.
