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. 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 under the supervision of 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, working on analysis for the planned Euclid space telescope.
