I am an observational astrophysicist. My main research area is Galaxy Formation and Evolution, and I also have broad interest in other fields of physics, especially Cosmology and AGN physics. I am involved in some of the largest astronomical surveys. You can learn more about my research by checking out my RESEARCH page.

I am currently a postdoc fellow in the Henry A. Roland Department of Physics & Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University. Prior to this, I was a graduate student at the Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics in the Department of Physics at New York University.

Please feel free to wander around and send me a message should you have any interest in knowing more about my work or me at:
