Research Projects

In general, I'm interested in how galaxies form and evolve througout the cosmic hostory. Specifially, I work on high-redshift dusty galaxies that are probed by their dust emission and dust absorption, respectively. I take a multi-wavelength approach to study stellar, gas, and dust content of these galaxies.
