Associate Astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute
As an astronomer, I study how galaxies form and evolve using observations with ground and space-based telescopes, in addition to computer simulations. A recent press release can be found here. As an instrument scientist on the JWST project on the NIRSpec team, I am co-leading the post-pipeline data analysis effort.
