About

I am a Physics Ph.D. student at Yale University, where I work with Prof. Pieter van Dokkum and the Dragonfly Team.

My research focuses the formation and evolution of dwarf galaxies in the Local Volume (~ 30 million light years from us), both in galaxy groups and in the field (isolated galaxies). I use various observational tools such as the Dragonfly Telephoto Array and the Hubble Space Telescope.

I like thinking about creative data-driven methods for exploring and discovering astrophysical objects and phenomena that were not known to us before.
