Assistant Astronomer Steward Observatory University of Arizona
I am a research faculty member at the University of Arizona, studying galaxy evolution with a focus on galaxy clusters, AGN, and star formation. For my research, I utilize a multi-wavelength approach, from X-ray to radio, with a focus on mid- to far-infrared. I did my Ph.D (2008-2014) at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with Dr. Alexandra Pope on star formation in galaxy clusters up to z~2 using deep Herschel imaging.
In 2014, I joined the groups working on the James Webb SpaceTelescope (JWST) at the University of Arizona as a postdoctoral researcher. I am a member of the Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) instrument team and of the MIRI and Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) Guaranteed Time Observation (GTO) teams. I split my time between detector testing and characterization for MIRI, preparation for Cycle 1 GTO science observations with JWST, and my current research projects.
