I explore the formation and evolution of the first galaxies in our universe
I am currently an assistant scientist (former post-doctoral researcher and SNSF post-doctoral fellow) at the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center (IPAC) at Caltech. My main interests include early galaxy formation at very high redshifts and the physics of star-formation quenching in massive galaxies at intermediate redshifts. I am the U.S. lead principal investigator of ALPINE, a 70-hour program with ALMA to study gas and dust in galaxies in the early universe.
My research focuses on the study of galaxies in the early universe. I am the U.S. lead PI of ALPINE and part of several large collaborations. Preparing for the future, I am scientifically and technically involved in several upcoming large missions, including ISCEA, a SmallSat being developed at Caltech/IPAC. I am also part of the IPAC Joint Survey Processing and Tech-Initiative team.
I am leading and co-leading outreach initiatives in and around Los Angeles. Follow me on social media and learn about ongoing science and upcoming astronomy outreach events.
