I am a staff scientist at the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center (IPAC) in California Institute of Technology. I obtained my Ph.D. in Astrophysics at the Univ. of Minnesota in 2018 on "Studying the Building Blocks of the Universe: the faint, low-mass galaxies" (advisor: Prof. Claudia Scarlata).


My research interests include studying the early Universe, especially galaxy formation and evolution in the early Universe. My interests extend to studying galaxy dynamics and observational cosmology. My current research looks to further our understanding of the formation and evolution of galaxies at high redshift by studying their star-formation and the physical processes involved therein.
