Ph.D., University of Hawaiʻi, 2008
Extragalactic observational astronomy; formation and evolution of galaxies and supermassive black holes; galaxy mergers and interactions; gravitational lensing.
- Galaxies that are normal galaxies across cosmic time and galaxies caught at especially energetic epochs (e.g., starbursts and quasars)
- Multi-wavelength astronomical surveys: Sloan Digital Sky Survey IV; Cosmic Evolution Survey; Herschel ATLAS Survey; Herschel Multi-tiered Extragalactic Survey
- Students design, prepare, and execute observational experiments for large ground-based and space-borne telescopes
- Students develop programing skills by writing software to analyze data and develop database skills by mining data from large astronomical archives
