About Me

I am currently an astrophysics Ph.D. candidate at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. My dissertation research focuses on galaxy evolution in the Universe's distant past, by way of examining some of the most rapidly star-forming galaxies presently known at very high resolution. These extreme objects, often called submillimeter galaxies, are some of the most luminous galaxies ever discovered, and they form stars thousands of times faster than our own Milky Way. By selecting those that have been strongly magnified by gravitational lensing, we can observe them at higher resolution than even today's best telescopes can afford us.
